AUGUSTINE, Florida (WDEF) – A pilot who amazed fans at the Rome Air Show has crashed near her home base in Florida.
Flight instructor Patty Wagstaff was at the controls when her plane overturned while landing at the Northeast Florida Regional Airport this evening.
She suffered minor injuries, but climbed out of the plane, okay. A passenger was unhurt.
Her 1958 Beech K35 had landed and was taxiing when it flipped off the runway.
