STEAMBOAT SPRINGS (Steamboat Today) — Firefighters responded to Steamboat Springs Airport for a small plane that flipped over. Preliminary word is no serious injuries.

Three men were able to walk away from an aircraft that flipped onto its roof during a crash landing shortly after noon Saturday at Steamboat Springs Airport.

Steamboat Deputy Police Chief Bob DelValle said the single-engine propeller plane was coming from Eagle County and had three occupants, whose names were not immediately available. The men had only minor injuries, including lacerations and abrasions and did not need to go to a hospital.

“Landing actions like this with airplanes like this, it’s not unusual for people to walk away with minor injuries,” said DelValle, who is also a pilot. MORE>>>
