ABINGDON, Virginia   (WCYB) — There are no injuries after a small plane went off the runway at Virginia Highlands Airport in Abingdon Sunday afternoon.

Emergency crews were alerted shortly after noon that a small plane went off the runway.

News 5 spoke to a family member of the pilot who told us the Mooney M20K was attempting to take off but never got enough lift to take off safely. The pilot then proceeded to slow down, and went off the runway in the process.

The plane was able to be towed back to the taxiway.
