A Caldwell man walked away unscathed Tuesday morning after his plane ran off the runway at the Payette Municipal Airport. 

James Halcomb was approaching the airport runway attempting to perform a flared controlled touchdown, according to the man’s report to the Payette Police Department, when the plane turned, the wing dropped, and the plane ran off the runway, where it subsequently flipped. 

According to Payette Police Chief Mark Clark, Halcomb sustained no injuries, while the plane took on “substantial” damage, Clark said Tuesday, based upon observations made by police officers when they arrived at 9:15 a.m.
