GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) - A medical plane has been replaced after a gear-up landing at a southwest Kansas airport earlier this month.

The Wichita Eagle reports that a pilot and two crew members were on the EagleMed plane at the time of the Jan. 17 belly landing. A report from the Federal Aviation administration says there were no injuries.

The plane was taking off from Garden City Regional Airport to pick up a patient when the emergency landing occurred. EagleMed immediately sent an aircraft from Liberal Mid-America Regional Airport to pick up the patient instead.

A spokesman for EagleMed says a backup replacement aircraft was in service within a day.
