A Cessna 172N Skyhawk II flipped over Tuesday morning after veering off the runway following its landing on Runway 2 at Kahului Airport, officials said.

The pilot, who was the only person on board, wasn’t seriously injured, said Ian Gregor, spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration Pacific Division.

The state Department of Transportation reported that the pilot, a woman in her late 30s, was transported to Maui Memorial Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries after the plane flipped over at about 9:15 a.m. She reportedly suffered a small cut to her head.

The DOT said on its Facebook page at about 11 a.m. that DOT and airport rescue firefighting crews were working to remove the flipped plane.

While the plane was being removed from the runway, a couple of Mainland flights were diverted to Kona International Airport on Hawaii island, said Maui District Airports Manager Marvin Moniz. He said Hawaiian Airlines interisland flights weren’t affected because they could use the smaller Runway 5 at the airport.

By about 11:15, the main runway was reopened. “We’re back to normal operations,” Moniz said.

The DOT said that Kahului passengers should check with their airlines for current flight status updates.

The plane, which was manufactured in 1977, is registered to Fly Maui LLC, which has a Kihei address.

The Federal Aviation Administration will investigate, Gregor said.
