Strong winds caused a small plane to flip last night at the Yakima Airport.

Officials say the 2008 "Just Highlander" aircraft was landing on runway 27 when a cross wind lifted the plane and flipped it into the infield.  Rescue crews quickly responded and found both the pilot and a student exiting the plane with minor injuries.

There was no fire, and no fuel leaked from the plane. 

The owner estimates the plane was totally destroyed in the crash.
