The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating why a plane made a hard landing in a backyard in Plano Sunday.

The FAA says a Mooney M20 was traveling from Lubbock to Air Park-Dallas Airport in Collin County.

The Texas Department of Public safety says the pilot, realizing he was coming in too fast for landing attempted a touch and go, but instead veered to the left.

DPS troopers say the plane went through a fence and came to a stop in a backyard in the 6300 block of Douglas Street.
