No one was injured when an airplane had to make a hard landing Tuesday morning at Arthur Dunn Airpark, in Titusville Florida.
Scott Gaenicke, administration division chief for Titusville Fire and Emergency Services, said the two people onboard were OK.
Witnesses reported seeing the Beechcraft King Air twin-turbo aircraft trying to land on the grass runway, but even though the landing gear was down, there were no wheels attached, Gaenicke said.
The plane had to skid on the runway, causing extensive damage to the aircraft’s stabilizers, landing gear and fuselage, Gaenicke said.
Arthur Dunn Airpark has a 3,000-foot runway and a 1,790-foot grass landing strip. The airport is operated by the Titusville-Cocoa Airport Authority.
