A man escaped serious injury after his plane crashed at the Gastonia Municipal Airport on Friday.

The wreck happened just after noon, and involved a small private plane.

Police said the plane’s pilot missed the approach while trying to land on the runway. The plane skidded about 200 feet before stopping, and nobody else was involved.

The man who piloted the plane walked away under his own power. He was taken to CaroMont Regional Medical Center with minor injuries.

Multiple GEMS ambulance trucks and Gastonia Fire Department engines were at the scene.

Officials haven’t said what caused the crash.
