Posted

ELY – Emergency and law enforcement officials responded to a minor airplane crash Tuesday morning at the Ely Municipal Airport.
Personnel from the St. Louis County Sheriff’s office, Ely Police Department and Emergency Medical Services were called to the airport in Morse Township at about 11:20 a.m. on Tuesday for a reported plane crash.
Upon arrival, according to St. Louis County Sheriff Sgt. G. Toma, it was determined that the pilot, R. James Campbell, 75, of Lincoln, Neb., the sole occupant of the plane, was uninjured and the Piper Malibu fixed-wing, single-engine plane he was flying had sustained minor damage to the front landing gear and propeller during landing, Toma said.
The incident remains under investigation by the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Aviation Administration.
