CENTENNIAL, Colo. - A small plane registered to an aviation club flipped on the north side of Centennial Airport Wednesday.

The Diamond DA 20-C1, a small single engine plane, ended up with its wheels pointing skyward and visible damage to the canopy and propeller.

Both passengers suffered minor injuries.
