TULSA - All runways are open at the Jones Riverside Airport after one runway was closed when a small plane flipped Wednesday morning.
According to officials, the incident happened when the Cessna 172's throttle became stuck as a mechanic was moving the plane from one hanger to another. Reportedly, the plane reached speeds of 35 mph before it flipped.
The man was transported to the hospital for cuts to his forehead, nose and fingers.
Both the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation and Safety board have been notified of the incident.
