Small plane makes belly landing at Concord airport

CONCORD, N.C. — A single-engine plane made an emergency landing after its landing gears failed Friday morning in Concord.

Just after 11 a.m., Chopper 9 Skyzoom captured the Cessna 210L on its approach to Concord-Padgett Regional Airport and it was apparent that its rear landing gears were not operating properly.

The aircraft was descending onto the runway with extended landing gears that appeared to be flailing in the air.

The Cessna, which is registered out of Fort Mill, landed on its belly and skidded to a stop along the side of the runway. Two men, who appeared unharmed, then exited the plane.

It is unclear what caused the landing gear to malfunction.

Channel 9 has reached out for more details.
