Small plane crashes into fence at Livermore Airport


A small World War II-era plane ran off the runway and veered into a perimeter fence at the Livermore Municipal Airport on Tuesday afternoon, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

The incident occurred at about 3:35 p.m. at the airport at 680 Terminal Circle.

The pilot was practicing touch-and-gos at the airport, a practice where the pilot lands and then takes off again without stopping.

The two people on board the single-engine plane were not injured.

No other information was released at this time, and the investigation is still ongoing.
