Small plane has hard landing in Fargo

FARGO – A small plane had a rough landing Tuesday morning at the Fargo Jet Center, but the pilot walked away without injury.

The incident happened about 8:20 a.m. when Jet Center officials were notified a small propeller plane was approaching with landing gear trouble.

As the plane landed, the nose gear collapsed, causing damage to the plane, said Mark Solem, fire chief of the North Dakota Air National Guard Fire Department.

Solem said the pilot was the only person aboard the plane and he was not injured.
