AUBURN, Calif — Emergency crews were called out to the scene of a small plane crash at the Auburn Municipal Airport, Monday afternoon.

The pilot was “on touch-and-go” landing after his plane stalled, according to Auburn Airport Operations Officer Walk Wilson. The small, single-engine aircraft came down and rolled over on its top before finally coming to a stop in the grass near the tarmac.

The pilot, who has not yet been identified, only suffered a minor injury in the crash, according to CAL FIRE.

The airport is closed to aircraft while the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) conducts an investigation into the incident.
