Crews Cleaning Up Fuel Leak After Minor Accident At Airport

By  | 

A minor accident at the Springs airport gave the pilot a scare Saturday morning.

Authorities tell us a small two-seater aircraft was trying to land at the Colorado Springs Airport around 9 a.m. when its wing tipped while performing touch and go landings. The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association describes touch and goes as a "technique for an emergency go-around should he or she detect a runway hazard after touching down."

CSFD says the pilot was a little shaken up, but otherwise uninjured. A spokesperson with the airport says there was some "light" damage to the plane, including a fuel leak. Peterson Air Force Base is reportedly helping with cleanup.
