Washoe County sheriff's deputies say initial reports indicate
Maria Faber was approaching the landing strip but ran out of room
and attempted to abort the landing.
According to witnesses, Faber made a banking turn to begin
another attempt but the plane turned upside down and crashed to the
ground, investigators said.
The accident occurred Tuesday afternoon at the Air Sailing
Gliderport near Winnemucca Ranch Road about 25 miles north of Reno.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
