A UPS cargo plane went off the runway at the Alexandria Airport on the night of December 28 and ended up in a plowed field, according to a report in the Echo Press. Airport Manager Kreg Anderson described the incident as a “runway excursion.”

Anderson said the pilot, the sole occupant, lost control of the aircraft. He was not injured. The plane was taken to a hangar at the airport and the incident is under investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration. A preliminary report says the aircraft experienced a “nose gear collapse subsequent to a runway overrun during an aborted takeoff attempt.” The plane was damaged and it is not known at this time if it can be repaired.
