SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Firefighters said no one was injured when a small airplane was forced to land at a Scottsdale airport with a faulty gear.

The Scottsdale Fire Department said a pilot aboard the single-engine Cessna observed a light come on Friday morning that indicated trouble with the landing gear.

Fire spokesman Jay Ducote said the plane was able to make a successful belly landing despite the gear being partially extended.

Ducote said only one other passenger was on the aircraft.

The plane was being removed from the runway by crane.
