Hutchinson, Kan. (KWCH) - Three people are okay after taking a bump landing at Hutchinson Regional Airport Saturday.

This happened just after 6:00 p.m. Saturday. Hutchinson Police and EMS responded. A spokesperson for the airport said it appeared the landing gear did not deploy, potentially causing the small plane to skid before coming to a stop.

Three people on board, including the pilot, were not hurt. A wrecker from Galva is on the way to remove the plane from the runway. Until then, the runway is shut down, forcing other flights to re-route, including one carrying Kansas Lt. Governor Jeff Colyer.

An airport spokesperson said the airport never declared an emergency landing. The flight's intended destination was Hutchinson Regional Airport.
