PLAINWELL, Michigan — A small plane missed the runway and nearly ran into U.S. 131 Sunday afternoon.

Officials from the Plainwell Municipal Airport, the pilot couldn’t stop in time. The airplane went through the fence and came to rest in the ditch between the airport and north bound U.S. 131.

The pilot was the only one aboard and was not injured.

The entrance from 106th Avenue was shut down so the FAA could investigate.

This is the third minor crash in as many years at that location. In 2011 a pilot was killed attempting to land when the plane hit a semi heading south on the highway just outside of the airport.
