POMONA, California (May 9, 2016) — A 61-year-old pilot of a small airplane was airlifted to a hospital after he crash landed Sunday afternoon on top of a roof at a building in the 970 block of Corporate Center Drive, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
The 5 p.m. crash took place near Devry University. The pilot reportedly lost power just before putting down the small white and orange Piper Aircraft N5046W on top of the building near the 57 and 10 freeways. Paramedics responded to the scene of the crash and transported the injured pilot to a local hospital by helicopter where he is being treated for head trauma and a broken leg.

The aircraft was heading to the Brackett Airfield at the time of the crash. One report indicated the pilot has 45 years of flying experience.
