Just Aircraft Highlander, C-IPYK: Incident occurred July 10, 2014 at Oak Hills Flying Club, Stirling Airport, Ontario - Canada

A pilot of an ultralight plane is lucky after having difficulty landing a light plane this evening at the Stirling airport on Airport Road.

Initial reports indicated a small plane was seen going end over end.

The pilot, who was the only one on board, made it out and to the clubhouse where a nurse treated scrapes to his head.

He was in his early 70s and from Combermere, a village in Madawaska Valley Township.

The incident occurred at around 6:30 p.m.

Quinte West fire, OPP, and ambulance responded.

One week ago a pilot from Stirling, who was flying an ultralight aircraft, was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries after having problems landing at the same airport.
