A small plane veered off a runway at a Colebrook airport Thursday morning, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.
FAA officials said the plane, a Cessna C140, veered runway 22L after landing at Gifford Field Airport in Colebrook at 9:45 a.m.
After the plane went off the runway, it got stuck in snow, and flipped over as the pilot was attempting to get the plane out of the snow, officials said.
The FAA will investigate the incident.
Officials said all information about the incident is preliminary and subject to change.

Worcester buildings, Framingham barn destroyed by weight of snow
WORCESTER, Mass. —The weight of snow dumped by a relentless winter has proven too heavy for some buildings. Several roof bucklings and collapses have been reported in area buildings.
A multi-story building on Eastern Avenue in Worcester was on the verge of collapse Wednesday afternoon after part of the roof gave way. Crews decided to tear down the vacant structure.
A garage on the same street was also being closely watched early Thursday.
On Wednesday morning, two cows were killed and four others injured when the roof of a barn in Framingham collapsed.
Officials said property owners should try to clear snow from roofs ahead of Friday’s rain.
“With the addition of rain in the immediate forecast, dry, fluffy snow piled on roofs can act as a sponge, absorbing any additional sleet and rain, adding weight and stress to structures if not cleared,” MEMA Director Kurt Schwartz said. “Flat, commercial roofs are most susceptible if they are not draining properly.”
