Plane Goes Off Runway At Palomar Airport

Posted: Updated:

One person was injured today when a single-engine plane crash-landed short of the runways at McClellan-Palomar Airport, authorities reported.

The pilot of the Cessna made the rough landing on the east side of the airport shortly after 4:30 p.m., a NorthComm dispatcher said. The aircraft came to rest tipped forward on its nose.

The injured person was able to get out of the damaged plane on his own, according to the dispatcher, who could not immediately say if the plane was carrying any passengers.

The nature and extent of the man's injuries were not immediately available.
