An Alaska Air Transit charter flight with one pilot and seven passengers landed with wheels up late Saturday afternoon. No one was injured in the incident, said director of operations Dan Owen. The Homer Volunteer Fire Department responded, but did not treat or transport anyone.
The incident closed down the Homer Airport until about 7 p.m.
Alaska Air Transit reported the incident to the National Transportation Safety Board, and NTSB officials released the plane, a twin-engine Piper PA-31-350 Navajo-Chieftain, so that it could be moved off the airport runway.
