WOODS CROSS -- A man was airlifted to the hospital after firefighters had to pull him from the wreckage of a plane which flipped over on him as he was attempting to land here Saturday.
South Davis Metro Fire Agency deputy chief Jim Rampton, said the crash happened at Skypark Airport just before 3:30 p.m., when the plane wound up in a "pretty saturated" grassy area just off the runway. That caused the nose of the single seat propeller aircraft to dip, getting stuck in the mud and flipping the plane, Rampton said.
Firefighters lifted the plane off the man, whose injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.
Rampton said he did not have the pilot's name, but he believes he was a local man.
Officials from the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating.
