Page, Ariz. • A Utah-registered single-engine plane carrying a pilot and six French tourists crashed while landing at a northern Arizona airport, killing one person and injuring five others, authorities said.
The aircraft hit the ground and toppled over near the airport runway amid windy conditions Saturday afternoon in Page, the center of a tourist area about 200 miles north of Phoenix, Page Police Capt. Ray Varner said.
"The plane hit the sand and flipped over upside down," Varner told The Associated Press.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said the Cessna 207 crashed 400 to 500 feet short of the runway.
