Small plane makes belly landing at San Antonio International Airport

Four people on board plane are OK

SAN ANTONIO – A small plane with landing gear problems made an emergency landing Tuesday afternoon at San Antonio International Airport.

The plane had four people on board when it landed at about 2:50 p.m.

The people appeared to be OK.

The 1974 Beechcraft A36 based out of Baytown circled the airport for nearly two hours before making the daring landing.

The aircraft had about two hours of fuel.

Airport spokeswoman Nora Castro said the plane reportedly had issues with its left landing gear. Emergency personnel were prepared to assist the plane once it landed.

Castro did not know from what airport the plane took off.
