EPHRATA, Wash. —

A spokesman for Big Bend Community College says a small plane flown by a college instructor and a student slid off a runway at the Ephrata, Wash., Municipal Airport but no one was injured.

Campus security director Kyle Foreman said the instructor was teaching a touch-and-go landing Wednesday afternoon when a gust of wind pushed one of the wings down. Foreman says the pilot hit a sign and a light on the runway and the damaged plane came to a stop off the runway.

The college is investigating. Foreman says the Federal Aviation Administration is expected to join the investigation.
