TUPELO – (AP) The pilot of a Beechcraft Bonanza was slightly injured Saturday in a crash landing at the Tupelo Regional Airport Saturday afternoon.
Robinson says the plane had left Birmingham, Ala., headed to Tupelo.
The pilot suffered some lacerations and was taken to the North Mississippi Medical Center for treatment.
Robinson said the plane appeared to land short in the Tupelo Buffalo Park, then hit the fence. It bounced in the road and landed on airport property.
The name of the pilot has not been released.
Airport executive director Joshua Abramson says the National Transportation Safety Board was notified and the plane was towed.
