No one was injured when a small plane and a helicopter, shared by CBS owned stations KCBS-KCAL and FOX owned KTTV, got tangled up on the runway at Van Nuys Airport yesterday afternoon.

KTLA reports, no one was hurt when the plane taxied into the chopper.

The plane, an Aero Commander 685 fixed wing multi-engine aircraft manufactured in 1974, had a registration status that indicated it “may not be suitable for operation,” according to the FAA’s website.


A KTTV spokesperson told TVSpy the station will use one of its backup helicopters.
