Patrick Bell, 67, father of Indy car race driver Townsend Bell, was flying his Stearman Biplane, constructed in 1947, when he discovered the plane was no longer capable of accelerating. After circling several times over an unincorporated portion of Bennetts Valley, Bell landed the plane -- upside down -- in a vineyard, destroying about 20 plants, the San Francisco Chronicle said.
A local fire official said Bell refused medical treatment after the crash and went home.
