WYOMING, Del. (CBS) — A pilot and his passenger escaped injury after the plane they were flying in crash landed in Delaware early Friday morning.
The incident happened shortly after 7 a.m. at the Jenkins Airport just west of Wyoming, Delaware.
According to investigators, the 62-year-old pilot of a single engine Piper plane was making a planned landing at the airport.
