OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) -
A pilot suffered injuries that were not life threatening when his small plane crashed at the Oshkosh airport.
Thirty-nine-year-old Richard Maisano of Pennsylvania crashed at Wittman Regional Airport after his HXA-Bristell Light Sport stalled on Sunday. Experimental Aircraft Association spokesman Dick Knapinski says Maisano was taken to a Neenah hospital after the crash.
Federal Aviation Administration Great Lakes Region spokesman Tony Molinaro told USA Today Network-Wisconsin that Maisano was the only occupant in the aircraft when it stalled as it approached the runway.
Oshkosh is hosting the EAA Airventure air show this week. The airport was briefly closed Sunday night after the crash.
The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.
