CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -  A pilot is alright after an accident at the Eastern Iowa Airport Sunday afternoon.

According to airport spokesperson, Pam Hinman, the pilot was practicing touch-and-goes. At some point the aircraft flipped over on the runway.

Hinman says she's not sure whether the pilot was only occupant on board, but she can confirm everyone is alright.

Hinman didn't have any information to release about the pilot of the plane, but she can confirm it was a Stinson 108-2 Voyager aircraft.

The incident happened sometime between 2:30 - 3 p.m., and crews were able to quickly clear the runway.

Hinman confirms at least one outgoing Allegiant flight to Las Vegas was delayed because of the incident, but airport operations are moving smoothly.
