NORTH PERRY AIRPORT, Fla. - Friday morning a small plane had trouble landing at the airport.
The plane was trying to land at North Perry airport when it flipped over in a field. The pilot tried to land the plane but witnesses said it looked like he over shot the runway.
"The plane was coming right through the window," said Christopher Savage. "I saw it speeding down the runway well over the approach speed ... It bounced. I saw a second bounce, and from there on out I didn't see what happened. We ran outside to see what happened, and there you go: a plane upside down."
Authorities said the plane had taken off moments before the pilot started experiencing powering problems.
The pilot, a student at a local flight school, and his passenger walked away uninjured.
