High winds played a role in the crash of a single-engine plane at Greene County’s Lewis A. Jackson Regional Airport Sunday, according to troopers.
The pilot of the plane was not injured after the crash that occurred around 4 p.m.
The plane’s pilot was landing on the runway when wind gusts sent the two-seater aircraft onto its top.
Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Brett Collar reports wind gusts in the area of the airport registered as high as 22 mph earlier Sunday.
Troopers told our crew the pilot was flying in from an airport near Bradford before crashing.
The airport has since reopened after crews cleared the scene and removed the upright plane from the runway.
