Posted on

A small plane flipped over at Harry Reid International Airport on Thursday morning with two people on board.

Airport spokesman Joe Rajchel said the Cessna 182 overturned at approximately 9:25 a.m. on Runway 19 left.

The Federal Aviation Administration later said the plane “flipped over while waiting to depart.” No one was injured.

“Medical checked them out and they did not get transported for any further medical needs,” Rajchel said.

The FAA said the agency, along with the National Transportation Safety Board, is investigating. The NTSB will be in charge of the investigation.

It was not immediately clear what caused the plane to overturn but it happened as strong winds continue to sweep through Southern Nevada.
