Plane flips over on Rumney Lake

RUMNEY — Neither pilot nor passenger were injured Friday when a sea plane crashed on Stinson Lake in this Grafton County township.

According to the N.H. Marine Patrol, a plane piloted by Donald H. Stoppe of Ashland took off from Plymouth Airport about 5:20 p.m. and was attempting to execute a "touch and go" maneuver on Stinson Lake some 10 minutes later when it flipped over immediately after making contact with the water. Stoppe and passenger Nicholas A. Kontrovitz of West Swanzy were able to make it safely out of the craft. There was also a dog in the plane.
