A minor aircraft accident briefly blocked the main runway at the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport on Wednesday morning.

No one was injured in the incident.

Airport General Manager Kevin Bumen said Wednesday that a twin-engine plane with two people aboard came in hard while landing on the main runway at about 10:30 a.m. and became disabled.

It landed upright and no fire ignited, Bumen said. The runway remained closed while airport staff attended to the plane and its passengers.

Bumen added there was no damage to property other than the plane, which was only slightly damaged and likely repairable.

The runway was re-opened at about 11:45 a.m.
