BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A single-engine plane made an emergency landing Monday afternoon at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport.
An instructor and student took off in a Cessna Cutlass 172 from the airport in Cheektowaga and went to Batavia. After turning around and coming back as planned, the instrument panel showed only two of the three landing gears were locked down.
The pilot communicated with the tower and flew past, and it appeared all three landing gears were down. But as they couldn't be certain, the instructor followed normal procedure and retracted all landing gear and landed the plane on its belly.
Airport officials called it a "textbook landing," and though there were sparks, there were no flames.
The instructor and the student were uninjured.
