PRINEVILLE, Oregon (KTVZ) -- A pilot who called in to report a malfunctioning landing gear before landing at Prineville Airport Thursday afternoon brought the plane skidding to safe stop after the landing gear collapsed and there were no injuries, fire officials said.

Crook County Fire and Rescue was called to stand by around 3:45 p.m. as a Cessna 177RG Cardinal RG aircraft was experiencing a malfunction with its landing gear as it prepared to land at the airport, Division Chief Russ Deboodt said.

The unidentified pilot was alone in the plane, Deboodt said.

The landing gear collapsed on touchdown and the plane skidded to a controlled stop on the runway shortly after, he said. The pilot was able to turn off the engine and fuel supply just before touching down, Deboodt added.
