Small Plane Makes Hard Landing at Airport

MIDLAND - An air force jet took a little spill at the Midland International Airport Wednesday afternoon.

It happened just before 1:00 p.m. Laughlin Air force base in Del Rio says one of its T-1 Jayhawks was getting ready to touchdown when something went wrong with the landing gear.

The two pilots, who were the only ones onboard, were able to make it out safely after the rough landing. No one on the ground was hurt either.     

An investigation is underway to figure out what went wrong with the landing gear.
