during a landing at the Brigham City Regional Airport, Saturday afternoon.

At about 2:45 p.m., the 48-year-old pilot performed a hard landing at the airport, which caused the tubing that supports the front wheel to be bent, said Tyler Pugsley, airport manager.

Because of the bent tubing, Pugsley said, the aircraft veered off the runway and flipped over on its top.

The man was taken to an area hospital but was later released.

The FAA and NTSB are investigating the crash.
