PUNTA GORDA, Fla. - A pilot trying to make an emergency landing crashed upside-down in Florida over the weekend.
It looks pretty bad, but surprisingly, no one was seriously hurt.
Authorities say the experimental plane had troubles Saturday.
The pilot tried to land at Punta Gorda Airport, but came up short of the runway.
The plane nose-dived, and the propeller hit the ground, causing the plane to flip over.
Two people had minor injuries and were taken to a hospital.
A third person refused medical treatment.
The F-A-A is investigating the crash.
