Airport officials say a plane suffered significant damage after rolling down an embankment and hitting a fence at Henderson Executive Airport.

Reports say that a plane was having work done in a maintenance area around 1:30 p.m. Friday, but a mechanic forgot to set the brakes and chock the wheels. That's when the plane began to roll.

Officials say a crane will have to remove the plane. 

Operations at the airport were not impacted by the mishap since it did not take place on a runway. No injuries were reported.
