The pilot of a small airplane suffered a minor leg injury Saturday morning, December 8th, when his experimental aircraft crashed into a building at Hesperia Airport, authorities said.

The crash happened at 10 a.m. when the airplane landed, veered off the runway and struck an aqua-green metal hangar. One side of the building was pushed in by the nose of the plane. The pilot was the only person on board, said Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor.
