FUQUAY-VARINA (WTVD) -- A pilot and his wife were fortunate to walk away unscathed after their airplane overshot the runway Friday evening at the Triple W Airpark in Fuquay-Varina.


The small aircraft was attempting to land when the incident happened.

Pilot Jeffrey Thomas and his wife were coming in from Statesville to visit their son for the weekend.

Thomas was trying to land his single-engine plane, but because of poor visibility, the plane overshot the runway and veered into the woods.

Thomas and his wife both walked away without injury.
