TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson says one of its A-10 attack jets had to make a hard landing on its belly but that the pilot is OK.

Capt. Casey Osborne of the 355th Fighter Wing at Davis-Monthan says the single-seat jet’s landing gear malfunctioned before landing and that it’s not immediately known whether the gear deployed for the landing late Monday night.

Osborne says the pilot was not injured and that base personnel will examine the aircraft as they investigate the incident.
