A pilot was uninjured after his plane crashed and burst into flames at the Meadow Lake Airport near Peyton, according to the El Paso County Sheriff's Office.

The pilot was repeatedly taking off and landing at the airport. The sheriff's office say on the last take-off there was a mechanical issue which made the plane "land hard" just after it took off. The plane burst into flames, but the pilot was able to get out.

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office is doing the initial investigation and will refer the crash to the FAA and NTSB.
