HOLLAND, Mich. — One person sustained minor injuries Saturday afternoon after a small plane became overturned at Tulip City Airport.  Holland City Police and Fire responded to the call at 1:40 p.m. when they got word that a single engine plane had flipped over on one of the airport’s tarmacs.

The sole occupant of the plane was a 64 year-old Holland man, who sustained only minor injuries.

Strong winds are being blamed for the accident- interfering with the plane as it came in to land, eventually being pushed off the runway into the snow where it flipped onto it’s top.

There was no smoke or fire present during the incident, making the response much more manageable for responding agencies.

Police said the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) has already been notified about the incident.
