By Herald Staff

LOWER TOWNSHIP– Paramount Air Service President Barbara Tomalino said today Friday’s emergency landing of one of the their banner plans was caused by pilot error.
The pilot, Brian Harris, 23, of West Lafayette, Ind was flying a Piper J-3 Cub over Ocean City when the aircraft experienced engine trouble 2 miles from the Ocean City airport forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing in the marsh off 52nd street.
Tomalino said in published reports by the Associated Press the J Cub Harris was flying had two fuel tanks, but Harris was using one tank and did not switch to the other before running out of fuel this error subsequently caused “fuel starvation”.
The airplane was disassembled on the scene and returned to Paramount Air Service, which has a dozen aircraft, Tomalino said.
