Officials: No injuries in rough landing at Danbury Municipal Airport (KDXR), Connecticut.

No injuries were reported Thursday from what officials described as a "minor incident" at Danbury Municipal Airport in which a plane veered off the runway while landing.

Michael Safranek, the assistant administrator of the airport, said the plane, a Piper J3 Cub that is based out of Danbury, was landing at around 12:15 p.m. when it veered "slightly" off the runway and its propeller struck the ground.

Safranek said the Federal Aviation Administration was contacted about the incident but had not yet responded to the airport.

The skidding airplane was classified by airport administrators, Safranek said, as a "minor incident" and not an accident.

The city's fire department briefly responded to the scene, he said.
