BRIGHAM CITY, Utah (AP) - A pilot has only minor injuries after a rough landing at a small Utah airport.

KSL-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1nJ3NkO ) that the 48-year-old Brigham City man was trying to land a single-engine airplane at the city’s airport on Saturday. He radioed for help, saying something didn’t feel quite right.

Witness Faris Chebib says the pilot didn’t realize he had bent some tubing on the front landing gear during takeoff.

Airport manager and Brigham City public works director Tyler Pugsley says the airplane touched down and veered off the runway. He says the plane flipped over before coming to a stop.

Pugsley says the pilot had only minor injuries and was released from the hospital. The pilot’s identity has not yet been released.
