A pilot and passenger walked away with only minor injuries after a single-engine airplane crashed at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana on Saturday afternoon, officials said.
The Piper PA-28-140 Cherokee went down about 4:15 p.m. on commercial runway 20-R, John Wayne Airport spokeswoman Deanne Thompson said.
Both people on board suffered injuries described as minor and neither was taken to a hospital, she said.
A small fuel leak was quickly contained, Thompson added. The crash did not result in a fire.
Orange County Fire Authority firefighters responded to the scene and set to work towing the damaged aircraft away, she said.
No flights were impacted as a result of the incident, according to Thompson.
