KENDALLVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Authorities say a pilot wasn’t hurt when a small-engine plane crashed near a municipal airport in northeastern Indiana.

WANE-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1DTQsXn ) that Kendallville police and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating the accident about a mile from the Kendallville Municipal Airport in Noble County. It happened Tuesday evening.

Kendallville Police Department Sgt. Doug Davis says the pilot took off from the airport and had to make a turn to avoid hitting birds flying toward the aircraft. That’s when the pilot lost control and tried to land in a grassy area. The pilot lost control and the plane’s nose hit the ground and flipped over.

No other injuries or damage were reported.

Kendallville is about 30 miles north of Fort Wayne.
