VIDEO/PHOTOS: A plane has extensive damage after landing in the woods close to a Boy Scouts camp near Waterbury Airport on Tuesday afternoon.
The Federal Aviation Administration said the plane crashed in Plymouth on its way to Waterbury Airport.
Fire officials said dispatchers received a report of a plane crash around 1 p.m. The Connecticut Airport Authority describes the plane as a single-engine aircraft.
It is believed that someone driving around saw the plane go down and flagged emergency crews to the location. Authorities said it would have taken longer to find the plane had the people not been there to point crews in the right direction.
According to fire officials, the plane suffered extensive damage and is hanging from the trees about a quarter mile into the woods. It is on the campgrounds property.
