SAN DIEGO — A small-plane pilot and passenger made a safe belly-landing at Montgomery Field April 29, 2015, a fire official said.

The pilot of a single-engine Cessna 172 radioed the tower that he was having landing gear problems about 11 a.m., said San Diego Fire-Rescue Department Capt. Joe Amador.

Only one wheel descended as the plane headed for the runway. 

When the plane touched down, the single wheel retracted back inside and the aircraft skidded about 50 yards on its belly, Amador said.

The pilot kept the Cessna on the runway and neither he nor his passenger were injured, Amador said. 

The plane sustained some damage to its propeller and underside.
