FREEDOM, N.H. — A New Hampshire man is in fair condition after the vintage airplane he was flying crashed in Freedom over the weekend.

A spokesperson for Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine, says the 71-year-old pilot was hospitalized Sunday.

The 1936 single engine Stinson SR-7B Reliant plane went down in a log pile at the Verso Paper Company lumber yard.

WMWV radio reports rescuers found the plane upside down but that pilot Gary Cole of West Ossipee was able to get out.

Cole was the only one on board.

Officials from the New Hampshire Department of Transportation and Federal Aviation Administration were investigating Monday.
