A World War I-era plane crashed over the weekend and flipped onto its roof while trying to land at a military history museum outside of Boston…

Just saw this. Glad the pilot's okay, and nobody on the ground hurt. Plane looks a mess. Darn shame.

Very happy to hear the pilot is okay. I think there was a saying back in the day, "Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing."

one of my friends was there. he said the engine cut out as the plane was circling the landing field. the pilot got it started, but not in time to get enough power, and the aircraft came in at too steep an angle and noised over onto its back.

I've seen the video and boy did it crumple when it hit.
