A small single-engine plane flipped over upon landing at the Beverly Municipal Airport.

No injuries were reported after a small aircraft overturned as it landed at the Beverly Municipal Airport this afternoon, according to the Beverly Fire Department.

The plane was flying into the airport, located on L.P. Henderson Road, at noon when it flipped over before it finished landing, said Fire Captain Michael McCadden .


The plane came to rest the grass beside the runway. The aircraft’s pilot and the plane’s one passenger were not injured, fire officials said.

Beverly firefighters and police, Danvers police, Wenham police, and the Northeast Regional Ambulance service responded.

McCadden said he did not know the estimated cost of the damage to the single-engine aircraft.

“There was some definite structural damage,” he said. “But nothing too crazy.”

It is unclear why the plane flipped, but airport staff and the Federal Aviation Administration will investigate the incident, according to McCadden.
