No one injured as plane has hard landing at Buffalo airport

A small plane had a hard landing at Buffalo Niagara International Airport shortly before 3 p.m. Tuesday, but there were no reported injuries.

The incident occurred when a single engine plan going through a training exercise had problems with the landing gear. The wheels didn’t fully engage, causing the plane to land on its belly before skidding to a stop.

The student pilot and the instructor were the only two people on board, and neither was injured, according to Douglas Hartmayer, spokesman for the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority.
