SEATTLE (AP) - Boeing Field’s main runway was closed after a small plane was forced to land without its landing gear.

KOMO-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Ujk88V ) that the plane landed at the King County airport at about 3 a.m. Thursday. It blocked the runway until a crane could be brought in to remove it.

Airport spokeswoman Rochelle Ogershok told The Associated Press that there were two people onboard and neither was injured.

Ogershok says the landing gear on the single-engine Piper Malibu malfunctioned and it was forced to land on its belly.

She says the plane was removed at about 5:50 a.m. and the main runway was reopened.
