A father and son from Shoreline crashed their airplane Saturday afternoon at the Sequim Valley Airport.

Clallam County Sheriff's Office reports the 48-year-old father was landing a GlaStar two-seat-airplane for the Olympic Peninsula Air Affaire on a grass runway north of the paved runway. The plane's front tire hit a dip in the ground causing it to flip.

No one was injured.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the crash.
