SAN CARLOS (CBS SF) — A small plane was forced to make a “gear up” landing at the San Carlos Airport, Saturday morning.

The incident happened around 11:20 a.m. The plane’s 56-year-old pilot was on a business trip from San Luis Obispo.

According to San Mateo County Sheriffs, he didn’t realize the landing gear was still up until the plane touched down on the runway.

Fortunately the pilot walked away uninjured.

Airport officials closed the airport until the plane could be moved from the runway.
