A Saturday morning flight into the North Perry Airport ended with what police said is almost $15,000 of damage.
A 37-year-old student pilot botched the landing of the 1982 Cesna Skyhawk, sending him skidding from the runway onto the airfield and finally crashing into a runway marker sign.
The cost to fix the sign? About $4,500, Pembroke Pines Police said. The plane is twice as expensive to repair, coming in at $10,000.
The pilot, Luis Castillo, is uninjured and was alone in the plane.
