A small plane flipped while trying to land at a Wesley Chapel airport Friday afternoon, Pasco Fire Rescue says.

At about 2:50 p.m., Pasco Fire Rescue responded to a reported aircraft emergency at Tampa North Flight Center.

A Cessna reportedly flipped while attempting to land at the airport.

The pilot was the only person on board and refused transport to a hospital.

The airport is still closed while an investigation takes place.
