ROCHESTER, Minn. - A four-passenger airplane had a rough landing returning to Minnesota from the Vikings-Packers game in Wisconsin.
The pilot missed the runway while landing in heavy fog at the Rochester airport Sunday evening. Rochester fire officials said the plane bounced and flipped end-over-end in a field before coming to rest on its top.
The Olmsted County sheriff's office identifies the pilot as Scott Lebovitz, 23, of Owatonna. The Post-Bulletin reported Lebovitz was not hurt.
Three passengers -- Daniel Cronk, 36, Alan De Keyrel, 38, and a 9-year-old boy, all from Byron -- were taken to a hospital with bumps and bruises.
The pilot was able to call 911 for help. The plane left Austin Straubel Field near Green Bay, Wis., before the crash.
The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.
