An Odessa man that crashed his private plane just feet from Loop 250 is doing better.

64-year old Cliff Rowe is still at Midland Memorial Hospital in stable condition after Saturday's rough landing.

His 57-year old wife, Kathy Rowe, was treated and released.

The pair was flying in from Ruidoso, and were planning to land at Midland Airpark.

But when it came time to put the plane on the ground, the landing didn't go as planned.

They ended up on the access road of the Loop near "A" street.

Investigators from the Flight Standard District Office haven't yet determined what caused the crash yet.
