After landing at the Ocracoke airport at about 1:30 p.m. today, a small plane flipped over onto its roof without apparent injuries.

The pilot of the airplane and passenger did not require transport to the hospital after the plane came to rest in the grass near the north end of the runway, according to a press release issued today (July 25) by the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, on whose land the airport is situated.

Hyde County Sheriff’s Department and Hyde County Emergency Medical Services personnel responded to the accident.

The NPS has notified the Federal Aviation Administration. No further details were available.
