BEND, OR -- A damaged plane blocked an active runway at the Bend Airport, Tuesday afternoon, after a "hard landing."

 

A 75-year-old Bend man had just taken delivery of the 2018 Cub Crafter FX280 in Hood River earlier in the day. When Michael Herzog tried to land his new plane, the strut failed and collapsed, causing the wing and tail to hit the runway and pushing the plane into a “ground loop.” It came to rest in the middle of the runway, with a collapsed wheel strut, resting on its left wing tip and leaking a small amount of fuel.

 

Citizens and other pilots helped move the damaged plane out of the way. No one was hurt and the incident is under investigation by the NTSB and FAA.
