DALLAS (AP) - A World War II-era military plane has made a belly landing at Dallas Executive Airport.

Officials say the pilot was not injured.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the P-51 Mustang sustained extensive damage in Wednesday’s accident.

FAA records show the single-engine plane is registered to the American Airpower Heritage Flying Museum. The museum is a subsidiary of the Commemorative Air Force. CAF is a vintage military aviation group known for its historic planes, air shows and education efforts. It’s based at Dallas Executive Airport.

CAF spokesman Adam Smith says the pilot was on a regular proficiency flight when the accident happened. Authorities are trying to determine what went wrong during landing.
