SPRING, Texas – Officials are investigating a plane crash that took place at Hooks Airport Sunday afternoon.
Officials say a retired Marine was flying a WWII-style plane with another man on board when a tailwind pushed the plane off the runway as they tried to land.
The pilot was apparently practicing for a charity competition.
Officials said the tailwind pushed the biplane into a ditch on the right of the runway.
Both men are expected to be OK and officials feel the vintage plane can most likely be repaired back to working condition.
