MARYS – A small plane veered out of control upon startup striking a portion of a building Sunday afternoon at the St. Marys Municipal Airport. A pilot and his passenger escaped with only minor injuries. The incident occurred as pilot Preston Hoopes of Ulysses in Potter County was reportedly having difficulty starting his plane. He reported to Alan McPherson, airport manager, that he exited the plane to slightly move the propellor which he said suddenly started although the key in the ignition was turned to the off position as was the master switch. At the time, Hoopes was standing in front of the plane and ran after it and attempted to get inside of it. When this proved unsuccessful Hoopes dove out of the way of the plane as it veered right and traveled a few feet until striking the front corner of the building which houses airport offices on the bottom floor and the West Wind Restaurant on the second floor.
