MANDAN, N.D. - A 73-year-old Flasher man walked away from a plane crash in Mandan Sunday afternoon.
The North Dakota Highway Patrol says Rodney Ritz tried to land on the north end of a runway at the Mandan Municipal Airport.
The plane ended up landing short of the runway and a wheel deflated.
The plane skidded on its belly along the runway and caught fire once it stopped.
Ritz was able to escape without any injuries.
