ALTON, N.H. (AP) - A single-engine experimental plane has crashed while landing on an ice runway on Lake Winnipesaukee.

WMUR-TV (https://bit.ly/1dCGIsm ) reports the small craft clipped a snow bank while attempting to land on the runway in Alton Bay. The pilot was the only person aboard and was uninjured.

Photos showed the bright yellow plane nose-down on the ice, its right landing gear apparently crumpled below it.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.

The runway is still operational and safe for planes to land.
