Emergency responders say no one was hurt when a gyro-plane crashed Thursday morning in northwest Harris County, officials said.

Cypress-Creek EMS responded to the scene after the small aircraft belonging to the Tomball Police Department went down around 11:30 a.m. in the 20800 block of Stuebner Airline near Hooks Airport.

A gyro-plane is a small aircraft with a small engine that typically seats one or two people.

The Tomball police said the accident happened after the aircraft, referred to a "Michael One," landed following a patrol mission. While the gyro-plane was taxiing, a gusting crosswind hit the aircraft causing it to veer off the runway.

The aircraft suffered significant damage, police said.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are also investigating the incident.
