Norway’s first battery-powered plane crashed into a lake

Norway’s first battery-powered plane crashed into a lake Norway's first battery-powered airplane crashed into a lake yesterday, Reuters reports. While no one was harmed in the crash, the incident could be a set back for the country, which hopes to electrify all domestic flights by 2040. It's still unclear why the electric plane, an Alpha Electro G2, lost engine power, forcing the pilot to crash-land on his way back to the airport. The plane is owned by Avinor, Norway's state-run airport operator, and it was being flown by chief executive Dag Falk-Petersen. The company had spent the day giving tours to high-profile government officials.

The reason for the crash landing is unknown, although the FAA said it might be because of a bird strike. The plane is still afloat, and people are still coming out of the EDIT: Reports are now saying that everyone made it out, and that the crash was due to birds hitting the engine. Great pilot skills!

NEW YORK (CNN) -- A US Airways plane with 155 people on board ditched into a chilly Hudson Witness Ben Vonklemperer said he watched the plane from the 25th floor of an office building. More than 56,000 bird strikes were reported to the FAA from 1998 to 2004, according to the group's Web site.

DeQuarto said the Cessna had some kind of engine trouble before it struck the side of the two-story house, but he had no other details.

Sky Acres Airport is a privately-owned, public access airport.

The airport's website lists it as "an ideal landing site and stopover for travelers visiting the Hudson Valley and New England areas.”

Republic Airport, located in East Farmingdale on Long Island, is a general aviation airport “that supports recreation and business flying, but not commercial,” according to its website.
