Pilot escapes injury when small plane flips upside down during landing at Casper airport


CASPER, Wyoming — Officials say no injuries were reported when a small airplane flipped upside down while landing at the Casper airport.

Glenn Januska, manager of the Casper-Natrona County International Airport, tells The Casper Star-Tribune ( ) the pilot was trying to land Monday when winds shifted and got under one of the wings, causing the plane to flip.

The pilot, whose name has not been released, was the only one on board.

Januska says crews righted the plane and moved it to a maintenance shop at the airport.
