Plane flips on landing, pilot injured

HOLLAND, Mich. (WOOD) — A plane overturned while landing at an airport in Holland Saturday.

It happened just after 1:30 p.m. at the West Michigan Regional Airport, formerly the Tulip City Airport, located at 1581 South Washington Avenue.

The single-engine airplane was landing when strong cross winds caused the plane to be overturned, according to a news release from the Holland Department of Public Safety.

The pilot, a 64-year-old Holland man, was able to get out of the plane by himself, and was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

The Federal Aviation Administration has been called in to investigate the cause of the crash.
