One Injured When Plane Lands Upside Down at Hudson Valley Airport
A local pilot was injured after his plane flipped over and landed upside down.
At the scene, deputies found a Cessna L19 upside down on a grass runway that is used to launch gliders.
It’s believed that the aircraft was returning to the airport after completing a tow to pick-up another glider. As the plane touched down on the runway a landing gear wheel broke off, police say.
The plane rolled for about 100 feet and flipped over, coming to a rest in the upside down position.
The pilot, David Freer Jr., of Highland was removed from the plane and taken to Orange Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
The incident remains under investigation.
