 A small plane crashed through the fence at Lancaster County Airport on Thursday evening.

The crash happened about 7:45 p.m. It appeared that one man was on the plane.

He was loaded onto an ambulance, which left the scene about 8:23 p.m.

The crash happened at the northern end of the airport, about 30 yards east of Venture Jets, which has an entrance off Millport Road.

The plane was upside down, and a wing appeared to be shorn off.

The registration number on the tail of the plane indicated it was a 1965 Piper four-seater registered to an owner in Carroll County, Maryland.
