The plane then started to move once the pilot lost control. He found himself struck by the tail section of the plane, was knocked into the air and fell, striking his head on the ground.

After the plane finally came to rest against a hangar door, the man was flown to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital.

His condition is not yet known at this time.
