FLINT (WJRT) - (05/31/16) - A student pilot got some real life training in making an emergency landing Tuesday evening and luckily everyone is OK.

It happened at Flint's Bishop International Airport shortly after 5:30 p.m.

According to an airport spokesperson, two people from Alma were on board when they realized they were having an issue.

While trying to get to the ground safely, the landing gear malfunctioned too causing the wheels to collapse.

As a result, the plane came in on its belly.

The runway was shutdown, but we're told it didn't impact any other flights.

FAA records online show the plane is a 6-seat Cessna 210E, registered to an owner in St. Johns.
