Capt Steven Lesher in A small plane crashed at the Mishawaka Pilots Club in western Elkhart County late Wednesday morning.


Capt Steven Lesher in A small plane crashed at the Mishawaka Pilots Club in western Elkhart County late Wednesday morning.



It happened around 11:30.

Two people were onboard.

The plane was landing when the Pilot lost control, and the plane flipped.

The Pilot Capt Steven Lesher said he's been flying since 1967, and it's never happened to him before Wednesday.

"I wasn't scared," said Steven Lesher. "Just one of those things that happens. We got into the snow, and it started coming up, and I thought, 'oh no,' and we ended up on our back."

Injuries turned out to be very minor. Neither passenger was taken to the hospital, but the plane will need repairs.

The Mishawaka Pilots Club is on County Road 20 in Baugo Township, just east of the Elkhart/St. Joseph County line.
