CHICAGO (CBS) — A small plane flipped over Wednesday morning while landing at DeKalb Taylor Municipal Airport.
DeKalb Deputy Fire Chief James Zarek said it happened around 10:30 a.m.
The pilot was headed from Wisconsin to Texas, and was stopping at the airport in DeKalb to refuel and take a break, Zarek said.
While landing, “something went wrong,” and the plane flipped over, coming to a rest on its windshield and the front of its wings.
Paramedics checked out the pilot, but he refused to be taken to a hospital.
Zarek said the plane’s owner is in Texas, and the pilot works for the owner transporting planes from one location to another.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
