FAA officials tell 11 News they are investigating an accident at the Montrose Regional Airport, after they say a small plane hit a taxi way sign.

The FAA says investigators will be on scene at the airport sometime today. The accident happened at around 4pm Monday. Officials say the plane involved is a Piper JC3, and as it was getting ready to take off, it ran into the sign. They say Piper JC3 planes have fabric in them, which is easily punctured.

The FAA says no one was injured.

According to FAA records, the plane is a 1941 Piper J3C-65 fixed wing single-engine aircraft, registered to Alan Pottasch of Los Angeles.
