PETALUMA, California (KRON) — Authorities responded to a plane crash at the Petaluma Municipal Airport Saturday afternoon.

Dispatch says California Highway Patrol received the first call around 4:12 p.m.

When officials got there, the plane was on the runway and had minor damage to the front of it.

The pilot, who was the only one inside, had exited the plane and was not injured. The pilot said they were flying from Napa to Petaluma and attempted to land at the Petaluma Airport.

During the landing, the plane was struck with a large gust of wind, which forced the plane to the ground.

The airplane was an American Legend Cub AL3.

The National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration were notified of the accident.
