Plane Small airplane crashes at Red Creek Airstrip
Two men were not injured after the airplane they were in flipped over while landing at the airstrip at Red Creek over the weekend. They were rescued without incident, but the article doesn't mention whether the airplane was removed from the scene. Thanks to Curly for tagging me in a post on Facebook.

Two men were rescued Saturday at 6 p.m. after a small plane crashed on the Red Creek Airstrip along the Verde River, according to a Yavapai County Sherriff's Office news release.
At the time of the crash, Maricopa County Sheriff's Office personnel were training with their helicopter in the area, according to YCSO.

They responded to the crash and found the 46-year-old pilot and 24-year-old passenger, both uninjured, officers said.
The two men in the crash are both from Scottsdale, according to YCSO spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn.

"The plane had flipped over at the end of a dirt runway," he said.

The plane is a single-engine Aviat A-1c-200, according to YCSO.
