SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, CA (KOLO)– An airplane trying to use the high speed runway Sunday flipped over while landing at the Lake Tahoe Airport, the city of South Lake Tahoe reported. 

The crash injured no one and airport staff are working to reopen the runway, the city reported.

The homebuilt Murphy SR 3500 ground-looped while landing on Runway 18 at around 12:15 p.m., the Federal Aviation Administration reported. A ground loop is a tight turn on the ground in which one wing dips, the FAA said. The pilot was the only person on board.

The aircraft is registered to David Shotwell of Selma, Ore., FAA records show.

The FAA and the National Transportation and Safety Board are investigating.
