HAMPTON, N.H. – The Federal Aviation Administration is expected to investigate the crash of a single-seat airplane in New Hampshire’s woods.

The bi-wing airplane crashed Sunday afternoon in Hampton, WMUR-TV reported. The 74-year-old pilot was able to exit the plane on his own and was released at the scene after being evaluated by rescue crews. WMUR-TV did not report the pilot’s name.

A resident reported the crash to authorities just after noon. The plane sustained minimal damage although it landed nose-down in a wooded area.

The plane is reportedly registered to a man living in Rye.

Federal authorities are likely to investigate the crash Monday.
