A small airplane flipped over at Jones Riverside Airport Wednesday morning sending a 33-year-old man on board to the hospital.

Tulsa Police say the single engine Cessna was parked in a hangar when a mechanic climbed in and started up the engine. Officers say the mechanic didn't realize the throttle was open and the plane shot out of the hangar, rolled across the tarmac and into a grassy area in front of the tower. 

Police say when the plane hit the grass and loose dirt, it flipped over.  

The unidentified man was taken by EMSA to a Tulsa hospital to be checked out for some minor injuries.

The incident closed the airport's west runway while crews removed the plane, returning it to the hanger. 

The NTSB will investigate the crash.

A check with the FAA shows the airplane is registered to Christiansen Aviation.
