ISLAND PARK — An airplane was blown into a fence while landing in Island Park Tuesday morning.

Around 11:20 a.m., the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office and Idaho State Police found the Cessna 182 Skylane had gone into a barbed-wire fence along the runway of the Henry’s Lake Airstrip.

The pilot told deputies that they were trying to land when a strong crosswind blew the airplane off the airstrip, according to a Fremont County news release.

The airplane was flying out of West Yellowstone, Montana.

Everyone inside the airplane is OK. The airplane received minor damage.

No other information was released.
