MARINA — An unidentified pilot survived a crash Wednesday morning at Marina Municipal Airport.

According to the Marina Police Department, police and firefighters were dispatched about 10:32 a.m. to a report of an aircraft that had crashed at the airport. When they arrived, they found a small aircraft resting on its top.

The pilot walked away from the incident with minor injuries and was treated at the scene.

The Marina Municipal Airport was closed to all aviation traffic as the incident was investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board.

In March, one person died after a small personal aircraft crashed into a field next to the runway. In 2014, a Mooney M20F single-engine plane landed on its belly at the Marina Municipal Airport after its landing gear collapsed with no injuries resulting from the landing. In 2001, a homemade airplane built and piloted by David Rominger, 70, of Marina, crashed in a strawberry field when the aircraft’s wings collapsed while approaching the Marina Municipal Airport, killing him.

Whomever actually ended up owning this plane, never filed the papers for ownership. Damn, as people age do they forget to do the basics? The former owner died this year, on March 30th. It was transferred to him in 2012.

If Jesse Pinkman had a plane, he'd put those same tires on it. Because it's total proof you can like fly, yo.

Those big tires are a sure sign that you are a Sierra Hotel pilot.
