Pilot OK After Crash Landing at Casper-Natrona County Int’l Airport
The pilot of a small, single-engine aircraft walked away uninjured after a crash landing at the Casper-Natrona County International Airport on Monday.
Airport manager Glenn Januska said the Cessna 180 crashed early Monday afternoon.
“The winds shifted, there was a little bit of a cross-wind that got underneath the wing of the aircraft as it was getting ready to land, and the wind basically flipped it upside-down,” Januska said.
Januska said the pilot was the only person on board the aircraft at the time of the crash. The pilot's name has not been released.
Januska also said, though information regarding the crash has been turned over to the Federal Aviation Administration, there's no word yet whether the agency will launch an investigation.
The aircraft was taken to an on-site maintenance facility.
