November 4, 2019

SMOKETOWN, Pa. (AP) — Federal aviation authorities will try to find out what caused a helicopter to roll over onto its side after landing at a Pennsylvania airport. No injuries were reported.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the Robinson R22 helicopter rolled onto its side and into the grass after landing at Smoketown Airport near Lancaster at 11:15 a.m. Monday.

The airport manager told WGAL-TV that the helicopter was being used for training, and it came down a little hard in the wind and tipped over. The manager said an instructor and student on board were unhurt.
