    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."
