A pilot is okay after crash-landing a vintage Russian fighter jet at Flying Cloud Airport in Eden Prairie on Thursday.

Eden Prairie spokeswoman Katie Beal said the MiG 21 jet came in too fast during a landing. The pilot deployed the jet's parachute, but it collapsed and the plane ran off the runway, crashed through a fence and came to rest on Flying Cloud Drive.

The pilot was treated at the scene, but wasn't seriously hurt. The FAA is investigating the crash.
