No Injuries Reported in Belly Landing

No injuries were reported when a small airplane landed without landing gear Friday afternoon at the Sallisaw airport.

The Sallisaw Fire Department was called out as a precaution after the airplane slid to a stop on its belly. The airport was closed while city personnel removed the plane from the runway. The Sallisaw Fire Department as well as the Sallisaw Street were working on lifting the airplane off the runway and into a trailer.

The pilot and one passenger were on board the plane, which reportedly received damage mainly to its propellers.

The pilot is reportedly a local resident and a long-time pilot. However, their name is not being released at this time.
