Second Local Plane Crash in Three Days

Motorists at Gulf Coast Community College got a rare chance to see something unusual, an airplane upside down in the parking lot.

Panama City Police tell NewsChannel Seven a man in his early 20s had to make an emergency landing about 3:30 Sunday afternoon.

The Cessna, a popular aircraft for training pilots, was rented from Tyndall Air Force Base.

Investigators say the pilot was having fuel problems and was trying to use the college parking lot on West Highway 98 as a landing strip. The nose wheel of the plane apparently hit a cub and flipped the aircraft over.

The pilot wasn't hurt and walked away from the whole incident.

Just last Thursday a pilot also walked away from his upside banner airplane after it crashed while trying to pick up a banner at the Panama City Airport.
