A World War II-era North American T-6 Texan aircraft sustained minor damage during a runway excursion at Geneseo Airport (D52), Geneseo, New York.

A North American T-6 Harvard (Texan) operated by the Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association, part of a flight of 4, leaves the runway during landing and coming to rest in a cornfield.

The sole pilot onboard the tailwheel-equipped airplane was not injured during the incident and the air show resumed shortly after.

“The pilot is fine and the aircraft has only very minor damage,” the museum said. “The show has resumed and we thank all of our first responders for their prompt and professional response.”

The “Operation Thanks From Above Airshow” featured 20 performances with the flying portion of the show from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Spectrum News 1 reported.

The plane has significant damage to the right-wing.
