A two-seater 1946 Aeronca Champ aircraft crashed at the Cambridge Municipal Airport in Minnesota, on April 11.
According to Trooper Tim Cunningham of the State Highway Patrol’s Cambridge post, “He [the pilot] landed the plane and just began taxiing… A gust of wind came and lifted the plane back into the air. He attempted to correct the plane using more power. The plane then overturned.”
The pilot, identified as Daniel Johnston, 65, remained unharmed.
Authorities said the aircraft ended up in an upside down position in a ditch near the runway.
The incident is under investigation.
