No one was injured after a small plane made a hard landing at North Texas Regional Airport — Perrin Field Wednesday Night.
NTRA Director Sarah Hinton said the Cessna 152, a single propeller plane capable of transporting two passengers, landed at approximately 6 p.m. and sustained damage to the nose wheel. Hinton said the pilot was the only occupant of the aircraft.
“The main thing is that the pilot was uninjured,” Hinton said. “And we removed the aircraft as soon as we could from the runway.”
Hinton said she didn’t know what led to the hard landing, but that the Texas Department of Public Safety would oversee the investigation until representatives of the Federal Aviation Administration arrived and inspected the aircraft.
Crews cleared the plane and reopened the runway within 90 minutes, Hinton said. She added that the incident did not affect airport operations on Thursday.
The Cessna 152 is typically used for flight training purposes and as a personal aircraft.
