Virginia State Police say a pilot escaped injury when his small plane crashed at an airport in Leesburg.
Troopers say 52 year old Robert L. Bailey Jr. of Fairfax Station was approaching Leesburg Executive Airport yesterday for landing. Police say a strong gust of wind forced the single-engine Cessna to crash off the runway and overturn.
