Small plane flips at airfield; pilot walks away

Posted: Updated:

HONOLULU (AP) - The Honolulu Fire Department says a pilot suffered cuts but refused medical attention when his small airplane flipped at Dillingham Airfield in Mokuleia.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the single-engine Cessna 305A landed on its roof at about 1:20 p.m. Thursday.

The pilot is a man in his 50s. Firefighters say he was out of the Honolulu Soaring plane by the time they arrived.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.

Honolulu fire Capt. Terry Seelig says the aircraft is a tow plane that pulls gliders.
