CHARLESTON, West Virginia — A single-engine plane landed short of Yeager Airport’s main runway late Wednesday night, authorities said.

The incident happened around 11:20 p.m. The plane landed in the emergency stopping area, the airport’s EMAS system, at the end of its main runway.

Kanawha County authorities said the pilot was injured but later seen walking around. He refused medical treatment. He’s from the Charleston area.

Information released by Yeager Airport early Thursday morning described the plane as a Cessna 182J Skylane, tail number N2408Q.

The airport’s runway reopened by 2:30 a.m. All of the commercial flights for Wednesday had landed before the incident occurred.

An investigation into what caused the pilot to miss the runway is under investigation.

Now this is interesting, assuming his landing lights were working, how does one manage to crash into the EMAS. Just have been clearly illuminated....My guess is he came in too low or slow. anyways now because of his error the airport has to replace the EMAS which will cost about $ 394,000 based on a similar accident report I observed online at ORD. My statements are based on facts. That's a lot of money any way you cut it! Hopefully next time he will fly a little bit higher on final

and your point is? EMAS saved a life, that's what it's there for!
