NEWPORT -- A 95-year-old pilot survived the crash landing of his Cessna 150 Monday morning at an airfield in Toledo, east of Newport.
Jack Haggerty had problems with brake and aileron pedals and came in high and fast, according to the Lincoln County sheriff's office.
Haggerty was able to land the plane, then lost control, veering to the right across the strip, striking a hangar door post, going nose-first into a ditch before coming to a rest.
Haggerty was pulled from the plane by Toledo Fire & Rescue and taken to the hospital in Newport. He was held overnight for observation.
Haggerty is a bit of a legend along the central coast.
On his 90th birthday, he flew under the Yaquina Bay Bridge, which prompted the FAA to yank his license for year.
