The pilot of a light aircraft that ended-up upside down in a field near Wolverhampton Halfpenny Green Airport has escaped without serious injury.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called shortly after 11.50am today.
An advanced community paramedic in a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic area support officer in a rapid response vehicle, the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford and an ambulance crew attended.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find the single-seater light aircraft upside down in a ploughed field not far from the airport runway. Fire crews at the scene righted the aircraft and the pilot, a man in his sixties, got out.
“He was assessed at the scene and found to have just minor injuries. He was discharged at the scene.”
