Small plane crash

Looking over the neighbors rooftop at the overturned plane on the left.
 This afternoon we heard a commotion on the road outside our house, and when we went out to investigate we saw firetrucks and aid vehicles parked in the pasture alongside the road. We asked what was going on and were told there was a small plane upside down in the wetlands down below our house.
The story goes, a homebuilt aircraft ran out of fuel and attempted to put down in the pasture, but must have flipped when coming up against the tall grass. Fortunately the pilot was unhurt.

A couple of local television station helicopters flew around the scene taking footage for a newscast.
