A Piper PA-28, Reg #N5529J crashed this morning in Cumberland, RI. The plane took off from Providence (KPVD) heading to Mt. Washington Regional (KHIE) New Hampshire. The plane experienced some engine trouble and tried to turn back to North Central Airport in Rhode Island. The plane made an emergency landing on Schofield Farm in Cumberland, RI. The plane ended up in the brush at the end of the field. No injuries and the pilot walked away from the crash. I stopped by the crash site and they had pulled the plane out so I snapped a shot.

Quoting Kellmark (Reply 3): I wonder what the fuel tank selector showed? That is a common problem with Pipers.
That happened to my friend and I over Oradell Reservoir on the way to CDW at 2000'. Boy, he went for that selector handle real quick. He'd only had his ticket a few weeks. He 'learned about flying from that'.
Just accept that some days, you're the pigeon, and other days the statue
