REDMOND, OR -- Redmond Airport was forced to close for a couple of hours Friday afternoon, after a small plane landed without functioning landing gear. Redmond Fire applied foam to the aircraft, after the successful “belly-landing” due to a small amount of smoke, but there were no injuries. The pilot was the only person aboard, and he walked away unscathed.


Flights were diverted or delayed following the incident because the alternate runway was closed by construction. The airport reopened after the twin-engine plane was towed from the scene.
