Small aircraft makes belly landing at Sugar Land Regional Airport.

AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION-(C)1997-2004 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

A single-engine aircraft was forced to make a belly landing at Sugar Land Regional Airport yesterday (16 March) due to a problem with its landing gear.

The pilot and his flight student were reportedly practising landings and takeoffs in a Trinidad single-engine aircraft when the landing gear became inoperable. The pilot then made a successful belly landing at the airport.

No one was injured in the incident, however the airport was closed for about an hour while the aircraft was moved.
