The Hibbing Fire Department responded at 12:57 p.m. to the report of a small general aviation plane crash.
The department responded with two engines, a battalion Chief vehicle and one medic unit.
The plane was reported to have crashed while landing and was confirmed to have one occupant, the pilot.
There was no fire, but there was fuel leaking from the plane. The Range Regional Airport ARFF fire truck responded and applied a blanket of foam to keep the fuels from igniting.
The male was flown by Life Link 3 helicopter to Duluth for injuries sustained during the crash. Airport staff says wind might have played a factor in the accident.
"This is the first time in 10 years we've experienced an aircraft accident here at this airport," said Airport Executive Director Shawn Germolus. "We're happy with the quick response today."
No details are available at this time about what led up to the crash.
