A single-engine plane leaving Houston Executive Airport crashed on the airport grounds Sunday afternoon.

The pilot received only minor injuries, said Andrew Perry, the airport's executive director, "but the airplane is majorly damaged."

The pilot was the only person on board, Perry said.

The plane was departing the runway when the crash occurred, according to a statement from the Federal Aviation Administration.

"He was taking off and someone lost control and ended up on the east side of the airport in the field," Perry said.

The plane was a Cirrus SR20, a high-performance four-seater with a single engine.

The Federal Aviation Administration will investigate to determine the cause of the crash.

Perry did not release the pilot's name but said he was visiting Houston.
