A plane being used in a training exercise was damaged Thursday when a wing clipped a snowbank while landing at the Davenport Municipal Airport, Sarah Ott, Chief Strategy Officer for the City of Davenport said in a news release.

The plane slid off of the runway, Ott said.

The incident was reported at 4:09 p.m.

The two people on board the airplane were not injured and declined any medical treatment.
