Incident occurred April 07, 2016 at Richland Airport (KRLD), Benton County, Washington



No one was injured when a small glider had trouble gaining lift at the Richland Airport on Thursday afternoon.

Initial reports were that an aircraft had crashed at the end of a runway.

However, Scott Keller, executive director of the Port of Benton, said an experienced glider pilot put the glider back down off the runway when he did not gain sufficient lift.
