McCOOK, Neb. -- A single engine airplane had a mishap while landing at McCook Ben Nelson Regional Airport Saturday afternoon.

Airport officials said the small aircraft came in with "wind issues" and pushed off to the left of the runway shortly after touching down, making contact with a taxiing sign and two runway lights. No one was injured as a result.

A replacement sign was priced out at $1,200 early Monday and, according to information city staff received from the pilot, damage to the aircraft was fairly extensive.

McCook Fire and Rescue, police officers and airport management responded to the scene after receiving a report at just past 5 p.m. of a single engine plane crash.

"The plane, piloted by a Montana male, crashed into the grass off the south end of the runway.

There were no injuries and no fire or disruption to the airport.

There was minor damage to a sign and runway lights as a result of the crash," said Chief of Police Isaac Brown.
