AUGUSTA, Ga.--A small plane went through a fence at the airfield and ended up on the Augusta Municipal Golf Course.

A student pilot was trying to land at Daniel Field when the throttle got stuck. The plane went through a fence and spun around several times, ending up perpendicular to the runway on the golf course.

The student pilot and an instructor were the only ones on board the plane.

No one was injured in the incident.

The plane won't be moved until the FAA makes a decision on what to do.
