PRINCETON, Minn. (AP) - A pilot walked away unhurt after a small plane made a crash landing near the Princeton airport.

The Sherburne County sheriff's office says the Cessna 152 "flipped end over end'' and sustained heavy damage when it touched down Tuesday morning.

The pilot, 33-year-old Barry Ramage of Princeton, was the only person aboard the private plane. The sheriff's office says Ramage was not hurt.

The Star Tribune reports the plane had climbed to about 400 feet after taking off shortly before 11 a.m. and then lost power.

Authorities don't know why the plane lost power.
