The plane has three wheels, one under the nose and one under each of the wings. When the plane came to a stop, airport staff righted the plane with a fork lift and then pushed it by hand off the runway, Myers said.

One of the runways was closed until 4:40 p.m., Myers said. There were no diversions or delays of other flights.

The plane is locally owned and carrying a passenger in addition to the pilot. The plane is now housed at the airport. The Federal Aviation Administration will conduct an investigation, Myers said.
