No Injuries After Student Pilot Makes Hard Landing At Beverly Airport

BEVERLY (CBS) -- A small plane piloted by a student made a hard landing at Beverly Municipal Airport on Sunday afternoon after its landing gear collapsed, authorities said.

Fire officials said it did not appear there were any injuries and the two people on board were out walking around when emergency crews arrived at the scene.

The pilot of the twin-engine Piper PA-23 was practicing takeoffs and landing just after 3 p.m., the Federal Aviation Administration said.

The fire department had been alerted to a possible problem with the plane before it landed, Beverly Fire Deputy Billy Walsh said.
