HAYWARD (CBS SF) – A student pilot skidded off the runway but walked away uninjured when he came down too hard at the Hayward Executive Airport on Thursday morning, the airport’s manager said.

The two-seat Cessna 152 was arriving just before 9 a.m., according to airport manager Doug McNeeley.

The pilot was working on getting his pilot’s license, which requires flying a minimum of 20 hours solo per Federal Aviation Administration regulations, McNeeley said.

There was some damage to the plane’s propeller and nose gear, but no one was injured, McNeeley said.

The runway was closed for about 45 minutes while firefighters responded.

The FAA was notified and the plane was removed from the runway, McNeeley said. 

The airport has two runways so arrivals and departures were not affected.

The FAA is investigating the incident, agency spokesman Ian Gregor said.

HAYWARD -- A light plane's pilot managed to walked away uninjured from a hard landing at Hayward Executive Airport Thursday morning, authorities said.

At 8:56 a.m., a Cessna 152 was landing on the airport's main runway when it veered off to the side, Hayward Fire Capt. Don Nichelson said.

"It kind of spun off into the grass area" alongside the runway, Nichelson said. "There was not that much damage."

The pilot, a San Carlos resident, lost control while landing, and the plane's nose gear collapsed, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said.

Airport manager Doug McNeeley said the pilot was there to practice flying, and planes continued to take off and land without incident on the airport's parallel east-west runway.

Hayward firefighters responded with four engines, a truck and an airport rescue crash rig, and were able to clear the scene within a half-hour, Nichelson said.

The FAA will investigate the incident, Gregor said.
