SAN ANTONIO - A small plane had a rough landing Sunday at San Antonio International Airport.

The plane was seen on its belly and surrounded by airport police vehicles Sunday afternoon.

Video sent to KSAT 12 showed the plane skidding on its belly, seeming to go at least 100 yards before coming to a complete stop.

No flames or smoke were seen after the landing, however, one fire truck responded.

The airport said the pilot was the only person aboard the plane and is expected to be OK.

There is no word on where the plane was coming from, but San Antonio was its final destination.

Commercial air traffic was not affected. 

Story and video ➤ 

A small, single-engine private aircraft was forced to make a hard landing Sunday afternoon at San Antonio International Airport, officials said.

Elizabeth Cory, spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration, said the pilot was not able to get the plane's landing gear to descend and was forced to make a wheels-up landing on the aircraft's belly around 2 p.m.

Only the pilot was in the aircraft at the time of the landing and was uninjured, Cory said.

The cause of the landing gear malfunction is currently under investigation by federal investigators.
