A small, private plane crashed at Yellowstone Regional Airport on Saturday morning, flipping upside down.

The occupants of the Piper Cub — a student pilot and a local flight instructor — were not injured, but the Cody airport was closed for roughly two hours while personnel worked to investigate the incident, right the plane and move it off the runway.

The aircraft crashed on the northeast end of the runway around 11 a.m. Yellowstone Regional Airport Director Bob Hooper said the plane "apparently was affected by winds while landing, causing the aircraft to flip and come to rest upside down." The airport's aircraft rescue and firefighting personnel responded and assisted with the incident.

The plane is owned by Hunt Oil Co., a Dallas-based oil and gas company that owns property around Park County. Hunt Oil is part of a family companies that includes Hoodoo Land Holdings, which owns and operates the sprawling Hoodoo Ranch south of Cody.

A departing United Express flight to Denver was delayed about 1 1/2 hours, while an incoming Delta Connection flight from Salt Lake City was delayed about two hours, Hooper said in a Sunday news release.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are handling the incident.
