A light plane crashed at Tauranga Airport over the weekend.

Emergency services were at the scene on Saturday morning after a privately-owned Cessna crash-landed at the end of the airport runway.

The pilot was the only occupant and walked away with no injuries.

The nose wheel appeared to have broken and the plane was tipped forward with the propeller on the ground.
