YAKIMA, Wash. — No one was injured when a small, two-seat plane went off the runway Tuesday morning at the Yakima Air Terminal.

The plane somehow deviated and exited the runway during its takeoff around 11 a.m., but the two people on board are OK, said airport manager Rob Peterson.

The plane sustained minimal damage, but operations at the airport were quickly reopened when the National Transportation Safety Board allowed officials to move the plane from the spot where it went off the runway, Peterson said.
