A pilot suffered minor injures after a small plane flipped at an airport in southwest suburban Bolingbrook.

The plane was taxiing at Clow International Airport about 4:15 p.m. when the wind caught the plane and pulled it off runway into soft dirt, according to Bolingbrook police. It rolled down an embankment and then flipped.

The pilot was taken to an area hospital with minor injures, police said.
