MADRAS, OR -- A small plane crashed at the Madras Airport, Friday afternoon, while attempting to land. Jefferson County officials say no one was injured.


Emergency crews responded to the airfield just before 1 p.m. and found the Cessna 150 single-engine aircraft on its top. They say it appears the plane suffered a complication while attempting to land, and rolled over its nose, coming to rest on a snowbank about 2/3 of the way down the runway.

 

The pilot and lone occupant was able to climb out and was not seriously hurt. The FAA will investigate the cause of the crash.
