A small plane carrying only its pilot was damaged while landing at around 7:21 a.m. Saturday at Burnet Municipal Airport, officials said.

Department of Public Safety officer Andrew Thomas said the pilot, Mark Rankin, was uninjured and that the airport runway was not damaged.

“It was a pretty simple crash,” Thomas said. “The plane touched down and the pilot said it started pulling to the left. He entered a little skid and it pulled him off the runway. He came to rest in the median.”

Thomas said the plane, a Bellanca 17-30A Super Viking, had damage to its wing, undercarriage and propeller blade.

The incident occurred before rain fell in the area, the officer said. 

A representative for the Federal Aviation Administration told the American-Statesman that the plane was categorized as having “Extensive damage.” 

The National Transportation Safety Board was notified and an investigation has been opened.

The aircraft was en route from Spicewood Airport where maintenance on the runway was causing planes to be relocated, Thomas said.

Rankin, a vice president in Austin at the car-shopping company Edmunds, said he’s been flying for about 12 years without anything like this having happened before.
