Monday, January 14, 2008

SIKESTON -- A belly landing on the runway of the Sikeston Municipal Airport around 10:30 a.m. Friday resulted in the airport being closed for about five hours, but no one was injured.

According to information supplied from the Sikeston Department of Public Safety as well as airport personnel, the wheels failed to come down as a 1960 single-

engine Beechcraft plane attempted to land.

There was some damage to the undercarriage as well as the propeller ends of the airplane.
