Incident occurred May 17, 2016 at St. Lucie County International Airport (KFPR), Fort Pierce, Florida

FORT PIERCE — An airplane pilot has no injuries after the plane he was in flipped over at the St. Lucie County International Airport, said St. Lucie County Fire District spokeswoman Catherine Chaney said.

Chaney said the Fire District got a call of a plane flipping over about 3:28 p.m. Tuesday at the airport.

"The plane was on the runway when it flipped over," Chaney said. "The pilot was in the plane."

Erick Gill, St. Lucie County government spokesman, said he thinks the heavy wind caused the small plane to flip over.

"It was minor damage; I don't have the details," Gill said.
