Reports: Light plane crash at Fallbrook Community Airport

Posted: Updated:

FALLBROOK (CNS) - A light plane crashed off the end of a runway and flipped over after landing at a small North County airport Wednesday, but the 79-year-old pilot and his passenger emerged largely unscathed, authorities reported.
   
The aviation accident at Fallbrook Community Airpark on South Mission Road occurred shortly after 1 p.m., said Capt. Rich Berry of the North County Fire Protection District.
   
The flier and his 77-year-old companion were able to get out of the upside-down aircraft on their own and did not require hospital treatment for minor injuries, Berry said.
   
It was not immediately clear why the pilot lost control of the plane.
