ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. -- A plane crashed while trying to land on Wednesday afternoon at Malcolm McKinnon Airport.
A small experimental aircraft known as an RV9 was carrying two people and tried to land while the wind was gusting, according to a representative from the airport.
After crashing, the plane then burst into flames, but the fire has been extinguished. The two people on board have non-life-threatening injuries.
Two runways are currently closed at the airport.
