The airport is closed until the FAA can arrive and investigate. The runway will then be cleaned up from any standing debris.
Emergency crews were released from the scene in just a few minutes. Thankfully, no injuries were reported.
The plane's ownership was listed by Wells Fargo Bank Northwest from Salt Lake City, Utah.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. —A pilot avoided injury Sunday when his small plane landed at the Charles Wheeler Downtown Airport with its landing gear up.
The single-engine Mooney made the landing around noon on the airport’s main runaway. The plane slid through an intersection between the second runaway.
Both runways were closed for a short while so the FAA could investigate the crash. The airport has since reopened.
There was no immediate word why the plane’s landing gear didn’t lower properly.
