Imperfect landing

A Cessna 172 piloted by a SkyQuest Aviation student tipped over on its roof after it hit a field on the southeast corner of 216 Street and 56 Avenue. The pilot, who was alone, crawled out of the craft after the mishap, which occurred at about 1:10 p.m. on Monday. Langley Regional Airport manager George Miller said that the pilot, who had flown solo before, was taken to hospital even though he appeared to have suffered no apparent physical injuries. Transport Canada is probing the cause. - Natasha Jones/Langley Times
