A commercial pilot flying an ultralight airplane has had an unsuccessful landing last Friday, August 21, at La Prairie. The aircraft was thus completely damaged.
The 33-year-old man who meant to land near his hangar at Coastal Road, La Prairie, had trouble handling the aircraft, and following a false move, damaged the machine.
Slightly injured, the pilot went to a clinic to be cared for.
The damage done to the aircraft is estimated to be around Rs 4 million.
