▶️ Pilot crashes single-engine plane in Sunriver, nobody injured

A pilot and passenger escaped injury Monday afternoon when the single-engine plane they were in crashed at the Sunriver Airport.

According to the Sunriver Fire Department, the crash happened around 12:40 p.m. when the plane flipped upon landing. An airport official said the plane was pulling left before the pilot overcorrected to the right, causing it to flip.

Photos show the plane, owned by Leading Edge Aviation, upside down in the snow beside the runway. Officials on the scene said ice was to blame in the crash.

The small airport in the resort town about 15 miles south of Bend was closed while crews worked to remove the plane. It reopened just after 3 p.m.
