A Galway man crashed his single-engine plane this morning but walked away unharmed.

The accident happened at 10:47 a.m. Timothy J. Cowper, 51, of Shaw Road had taken off from Sky Ranch in Edinburg en route to Glens Falls. His engine failed and he circled above a field near the area of Barkersville Road and Southline Road once and then attempted a landing. The plane hit a small hill in the field and overturned, according to a press release from the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office.

Cowper was not injured and the plane had minor damage.

Federal Aviation Administration officials reviewed the crash scene and then loaded the plane onto a trailer and removed it.
