▶️ Plane nosedives into airport hangar, pilot escapes with minor injuries


A small airplane crashed into the roof of a building at the Long Beach airport Monday.

The Cessna appeared to punch a hole through the roof of a hangar building at the airport and became wedged nose-down partially stuck in the opening.

The pilot, who was the sole occupant, had to be extricated from the wreckage but suffered only minor injuries and was transported to a local hospital, officials say.

The incident was reported around 2:18 p.m.

Firefighters say about 45 gallons of fuel were leaking after the crash.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
