Two people escaped without injury when their Cessna aircraft flipped while landing near the Ohakune airstrip this morning.
Sergeant Mike Craig, Ohakune Police, said the crash happened at 10.30am when the pilot mistook a freshly ploughed paddock for the neighbouring airstrip.
"Fortunately the pilot and his passenger, who were on a private flight from Ardmore, were both unhurt," Sergeant Craig said.
The Civil Aviation Authority has been advised. Damage to the plane is unknown.
