Small plane flips north of Seattle; minor injuriesOctober 3, 2013 @ 6:55 pm
SNOHOMISH, Wash. (AP) - A Snohomish, Wash., fire official says the 72-year-old pilot of a small plane that flipped near Harvey Field airport suffered only minor injuries.
The Daily Herald of Everett reports ( http://is.gd/ff6Ywx) that firefighters found the man standing outside the plane Thursday afternoon in a field.
Snohomish Fire Battalion Chief Bruce Keaton says the pilot reported he'd left the airfield and reached an altitude of about 2,000 feet when something seemed wrong and he turned back. The pilot then decided he needed to land immediately so he headed for a field south of the airport. That's where the nose of the plane hit some mud and the aircraft flipped.
The pilot was not identified.
Snohomish is northeast of Seattle.
