    A small WWII-era plane ran off the runway and crashed into a perimeter fence at the Livermore Municipal Airport, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

    The pilot of the single-engine Consolidated Vultee BT-13A was practicing touch-and-goes when the incident occurred around 3:35 p.m. Tuesday, FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said.

    A touch-and-go is a procedure where the pilot lands and then takes off again without stopping.

    The pilot and a passenger on board the plane were not injured, Gregor said.
