BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - No one was hurt when a WWII-era plane wrecked on the runway at the Baton Rouge Regional Airport.

Airport spokesman Jim Caldwell said the plane “nosed over” on the runway Wednesday when it was landing, flipping onto its front.

Caldwell tells WBRZ-TV (https://bit.ly/1o04Nki ) that just one person, the pilot, was on board at the time and was not hurt. He said traffic at the airport was not affected by the incident.

Vintage aircraft enthusiasts on hand when the plane wrecked said the German fighter was worth an estimated $2 million.
