ADDISON (CBSDFW.COM) - A Cessna plane made a belly landing in Addison on Sunday. It happened just after 11 a.m. at the Addison Municipal Airport.

The plane skidded onto the runway after the pilot was unable to deploy the plane's landing gear, according to the Addison Fire Department.

Neither the instructor or student pilot on board were injured.

Airport crews cleared the runway; towing the crippled aircraft into a hangar.

The Federal Aviation Administration was alerted and an investigation into why the landing gear didn't work is ongoing.
