A plane at Henderson Executive Airport rolled into a fence and down a rocky area, causing significant damage, an airport spokesperson said.

At about 1:30 p.m. Friday, a maintenance worker was moving a Netjet Citation X, failed to hit the brakes and didn't chock the plane with the engine on, according to Christine Crews of the Clark County Department of Aviation. 

A crane was taken to the the site to remove the plane from where it ended up. No operations were impacted, Crews said.
