A PILOT has escaped unharmed after his plane flipped over while he was making an emergency landing in Lethbridge this afternoon.

After encountering difficulties the male pilot of the light plane sought permission to land in a paddock.

While attempting to land, the aircraft hit a rock which caused the plane to flip onto its roof about 2.15pm, police say.

The lone pilot aboard the plane escaped uninjured.
