Millard Airport has reopened in the aftermath of a small aircraft crash Saturday afternoon. The pilot escaped with minor injuries.

The initial report came out at approximately 1:55 p.m.

Authorities on the scene described the aircraft as an RAF 200 Rotorcraft.

Authorities said the pilot had been flying for "some time" prior to the crash during an attempt to land.

Officials said the pilot suffered minor injuries and walked to the ambulance. The airport was shut down until an FAA investigator could arrive from Lincoln and reopened about three-and-a-half hours after the accident.

What caused the crash was not immediately known.

The circumstances of the incident remain under review by the FAA and NTSB.
