YULEE, Florida – A person suffered minor injuries after a plane crashed in Nassau County Sunday evening, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol report, the incident happened shortly before 6:15 p.m. on Cessna Drive. 

The 51-year-old pilot from Fernandina Beach was flying a single-engine airplane when he attempted to land but suffered a hard landing because of an atmosphere change.

He attempted to get the plane back in the air, but it diverted back down and crashed into a front lawn near a private airstrip, the report stated.

The pilot suffered no injuries, and the 52-year-old passenger was transported to UF Health with minor injuries.


  1. "Atmospheric change" .... That's a good one and seemingly now is the new CYA term

  2. What !? Utpal plays bouncy castle with his experimental aircraft having one other anxious soul aboard. Smooth.
