This Overturn Happened on a Runway
A small plane overturned after landing at Reid-Hillview Airport in San Jose this afternoon, a Federal Aviation Administration spokesman said.
Preliminary reports indicate the single-engine, four-seat Piper Pa-22 aircraft landed on the runway at about 4:10 p.m., experienced some engine trouble and flipped, FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said.
The pilot and sole occupant of the plane was not injured in the crash, Gregor said, but the plane sustained "considerable damage."
San Jose firefighters responded to a report of a some aviation fuel that leaked from the plane and quickly contained the incident.
