News Plane incidents — 11 April 2017

No one was injured after a Beechcraft airplane made a “belly landing” Sunday evening at Chicago Executive Airport, officials said.

Officials estimate the plane was traveling up to 100 mph when the two-engine Beechcraft King Air hit the runway without landing gear down about 5 p.m., airport spokesman Rob Mark said.
