Portland – Two men who were in a small plane suffered injuries that were not life-threatening after a crash landing at an airport in Hillsboro, Ore.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reported the 1963 Piper 250 Comanche single-engine plane crash landed on Thursday. Piloting it was 39-year-old John Gorman. He and 68-year-old flight instructor Ronald Magnus are expected to be OK.

Washington County sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Bob Ray said the plane came up short during the landing and hit the edge of the runway, and then went back up before hitting the runway again hard.

Ray said Gorman is a licensed pilot and was working toward an advanced certification at the time of the crash.
