ELLSWORTH — No one was injured when a plane flipped while attempting to land at Ellsworth Municipal Airport at 4:14 p.m. Thursday.

According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, a 2000 Cessna single-engine, fixed-wing plane was coming in for a landing when it drifted to the left. The left rear tire caught a snow bank, pulling the nose down.

The nose hit the ground and the airplane flipped.
