The main runway at Reagan National Airport has re-opened after a vintage aircraft flipped when it landed. The aircraft is part of a group of vintage bi-planes that flew in this morning to promote the opening of a 3-D film "Legends of Flight."

The Washington Post's transportation writer Ashley Halsey III was the passenger on the plane, but neither he nor the pilot was injured. Halsey captured video of the crash.

A spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration says flight inspectors will investigate the incident.
