PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A pilot survived after his small plane flipped onto its top while landing at a private runway in Eastern Oregon.

Undersheriff Steven Myren of Morrow County says someone reported Tuesday that a plane was upside down near Liberty School Road and appeared to have crash landed.

After speaking with neighbors, the sheriff’s office learned the hard landing occurred Sunday afternoon.

Myren says the pilot, Steven Huggins of Beavercreek, walked away with minor injuries and notified the National Transportation Safety Board.
