Plane lands at SLO airport without landing gear

Update, 3:30 p.m.: Runway 29 at San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport has reopened after emergency personnel removed the plane that landed with its gear up earlier in the afternoon.

Original story: A single-engine plane with a stuck landing gear landed safely at the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport early Tuesday afternoon.

No injuries were reported, but the plane sustained damage during the landing, a Cal Fire spokesman said. The degree of damage was not immediately known.

Airport management could not immediately be reached for further information, but Cal Fire said Runway 29 was closed, and Cal Fire as well as personnel from the San Luis Obispo Fire Department and San Luis Ambulance were on scene waiting for the incoming aircraft.

Three people were aboard the plane, the agency spokesman said.

Cal Fire said the incident remained under investigation Tuesday afternoon, and the runway would remain closed as airport staff and emergency personnel worked to remove the damaged aircraft.
