A small airplane landed on its belly Tuesday at the Unalaska airport. No one aboard was injured, but the accident shut down the runway for about four hours.
Returning from Akun Island, the Grant Aviation plane touched down without landing gear around 1:30 p.m., according to a statement by the Alaska State Troopers (AST).
The pilot and two passengers exited safely and declined medical attention. But the aircraft -- a Super King Air 200 -- sat on the runway with bent propeller blades for several hours before officials could bring a crane to move it.
