LIVERMORE (CBS SF) — A WWII-era plane ran off the runway at the Livermore Municipal Airport Tuesday afternoon, but no one was hurt, according to the FAA.

A representative with the Federal Aviation Administration said the Consolidated Vultee BT-13A ran off the runway at around 3:35 p.m., coming to a stop along a perimeter fence at the airport.

The fence is at the edge of the nearby Las Positas Golf Course.

Ian Gregor with the Federal Aviation Administration said the incident happened while the pilot was practicing touch-and-go’s at Livermore Municipal Airport.

A touch-and-go is a procedure where the pilot lands and then takes off again without stopping.

Neither the pilot or passenger on board was injured. So far, there are no details regarding damage to the plane.

The Consolidated Vultee BT-13A was a trainer widely used during World War II.

The aircraft tail number is N59842. Gregor said the Federal Aviation Administration would investigate the incident.
