A small plane crashed into a fence at Pompano Beach Airpark Thursday, a day after another small plane had its landing gear collapse.

Fire Rescue officials said the single-engine Piper Cherokee 6 airplane overshot the runway at the airport at 1001 Northeast 10th Street around 10 a.m.

Footage showed the damaged plane up against the fence covered in foam, with multiple fire trucks nearby.

The 50-year-old male pilot and his 61-year-old male passenger who were on board the plane were not injured. Both pilot and passenger are from Boca Raton.

The six-passenger plane is a total loss, officials said.

On Wednesday, another small plane had its landing gear collapse on the airport's runway. No one was reportedly injured.
