Light plane hits tree after wind gust

A pilot has walked away largely unscathed from a light plane crash near Burra, in the state's Mid North. 
The plane crashed while trying to land near Braefoot Rd at Hanson, about 15km southwest of Burra, about 1pm yesterday.

A gust of wind pushed the Cessna 172 four-seat plane off course and into a tree.

The pilot, a Mid North man, 43, suffered only minor injuries and went to the Clare police station to report the crash.

He was the only person on board.

The plane was a write off and the Australian Transport Safety Bureau is investigating.
