Plane Damaged After Rough Landing
BY TOM EMBREY
A single-engine plane was damaged when it landed at the Moore County Airport with its landing gear up this weekend, the airport manager said.
Steve Borden said no one was injured in the incident, which happened around 1:45 p.m. Saturday.
"It hurts the pride, and it hurts the pocketbook," Borden said of the incident, "but in the end, everybody was OK, and that's a good thing."
The plane was damaged, and a crane had to be brought in to remove it from the ground, Borden said.
The pilot, a local resident, was the only person on board the plane.
The incident was reported to the Federal Aviation Administration for further investigation, Borden said.
