JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) – An Arkansas father and son who decided to fly to orientation at Oklahoma State University have survived a crash landing in a parking lot.

Forty-year-old Kenneth Caubble of Jonesboro was flying the 1973 Piper Arrow aircraft Wednesday morning when the engine trouble began at 2,000 feet. He landed the plane in a Jonesboro strip center before its wing hit a parking sign and tore off. The plane then hit a second pole and flipped before the aircraft caught fire.

Both Caubble and his son were able to walk away uninjured.

Eighteen-year-old Harrison Caubble was able to register for fall classes later in the day and plans to major in aviation.

The Federal Aviation Administration is inspecting the crash.
