MORRISTOWN — Morristown Airport returned to normal operations hours after a small plane went off a runway on Saturday.

The Beechcraft King Air series aircraft went off the runway into a grassy area around noon in foggy conditions, which temporarily shut down the airport, according to the airport.

There was no word on how many people were on-board the plane at the time of the incident, but Morristown Police told Patch that there were no injuries.

Based on a photo of the aircraft shared by the airport, the craft appeared to be a King Air 250, which can hold up to 9 occupants. The King Air 250 is the "most popular business turboprop in the world," according to the Beechcraft website.

By 3 p.m., the airport was handling all incoming and outgoing flights on its only other runway as an investigation continued into the crash. Both runways resumed normal traffic after 9 p.m., according to the airport.

The FAA is investigating the crash. The airport did not disclose who owned or operated the Beechcraft B200 King Air involved Saturday.

Morristown Airport is a publicly owned, privately operated airport. Among its visitors, President Donald Trump often lands there in Air Force One during his visits to the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster.
