Two Injured In Twin Oaks Crash

Two people were hurt in the crash of a single engine plane Thursday afternoon at the Twin Oaks Airpark south of Hillsboro.

A student and instructor were on board. The student, 39-year-old John Gorman, was receiving additional training for an advanced certification. The flight instructor was 68 year-old Ronald Magnus. 

Gorman was landing the aircraft and was unable to maintain enough air speed to land on the paved runway. The aircraft came up short and collided with the ground at the leading edge of the runway. Two of the three landing gear were torn from the aircraft catapulting it upward, causing it to fall onto the runway. The aircraft fuselage was twisted and the wings and tail section were badly damaged. 

Both men were treated by Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue personnel and transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The FAA responded to the scene to complete their investigation.
