The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating after a plane landed with its landing gear up Sunday afternoon at the Lubbock airport.
Three people were on board when the single-engine Cessna 210 landed with its landing gear up at its final destination of Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport, said Lynn Lunsford, a spokesman with the FAA.
The hard landing occurred at 3:33 p.m. and by 3:45 p.m., Lubbock Fire Rescue had responded and said the situation was under control.
Lunsford said he doesn’t know from where the plane departed. The plane, however, is registered at an address in Idalou under the name “Kenneth W. Isom.”
EMS was not needed since one was injured, but the FAA will investigate.
