A small plane attempting to take off was severely damaged at the Williston Airport last Friday, when a fire erupted from both wheels.
According to the Williston Police Dept., the plane's trainee pilot, who was not identified, heard an unusual noise from the door and decided to abort his takeoff. After he entered a second runway, flames erupted from his right wheel.
Airport employees knocked down the flames until Williston Fire Rescue arrived and extinguished the fire.
