June 23, Louisburg, N.C. / Cessna 150


At about 1235 eastern time, a Cessna 150D suffered an in-flight electrical fire and burst into flames after landing at Ball Airport. The pilot was not injured. The pilot said he towed a glider to 2,500 feet agl and was returning to the airport when he noticed smoke from under the right side of the instrument panel. The smoke became flames shortly before he got to the airport, and he landed, stopped and exited the airplane as quickly as possible.
