A spokesperson with UK said McGlothin and Jackson were both listed in fair condition as of around 7:45 p.m. Monday.
Officials with the sheriff’s department said it appeared McGlothin was trying to conduct a soft take-off from the Boss Airfield “when the plane failed to achieve enough altitude for take-off before it crash-landed.”
According to the Federal Aviation Administration registry database, the plane appears to be registered to William Knapp Jr., of Dry Ridge in Grant County. McGlothin and Jackson are also listed as co-owners of the plane.
FAA records indicate McGlothin’s pilot certification was up to date.
Officials with the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board were notified of the crash and will investigate the cause of the accident. Sgt. Troy McLin, with the sheriff’s department, said they were expected to be at the scene of the crash today.
