A small plane is lifted onto a flatbed after the pilot crash-landed short of the runway at the Henderson Executive Airport in Henderson Thursday, July 28, 2016. No one was injured in the accident, officials said.

No one was injured when a small airplane missed the runway and crash-landed at the Henderson Executive Airport this afternoon, according to an airport spokeswoman.

Firefighters responded to the airport, 1600 Jet Stream Drive, about 3:30 p.m., Clark County Department of Aviation spokeswoman Christine Crews said.

The Cirrus SR-22 missed the runway and landed on dirt, Crews said. There was no fire, but the airplane was damaged and leaked fuel.

Runway 17 Left was shut down while the plane was moved and the fuel spill cleaned, Crews said.

There were three people onboard and no injuries were reported, Crews said. The main runway at the airport remains open and operational.

No disturbance to regular airport operations was expected, she said.
