The North Carolina Highway Patrol says a small plane crashed at Lake Gaston close to Eaton Ferry Road in Warren County Saturday morning.

According to investigators, the single-engine Smith Cub float plane was trying to land on the lake when it flipped over around 9:45 a.m.

Only the pilot was on board.

An ABC11 Eyewitness viewer photo showed the aircraft floating upside down in the water close to a dock.

It's the second time this year a float plane has flipped on the lake. A similar incident happened in April.
