A small aircraft landed on the main runway of Regina International Airport without deploying its landing gear early Tuesday morning.

Jams Bogusz, Regina Airport Authority president and CEO, said it was a private Piper 42 aircraft and that it happened at about 10:30 a.m.

He said the pilot was the only person aboard the aircraft and did not suffer any injuries.

“On-site firefighters responded immediately. The Transportation Safety Board cleared the plane to be towed away and it was removed from the main runaway just before 1 p.m.,” Bogusz said.

Bogusz said it’s unclear what went wrong and that no flights were delayed due to the landing.© 2021 Global News, a division of Corus Entertainment Inc.
