KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A spokesman of the Kansas City Aviation Department says one person has minor injuries after a small plane experienced a hard landing at a Kansas City airport.

Spokesman Joe McBride says one of the aircraft’s two occupants suffered a broken arm Sunday night.

He says the plane, which took off from an airport near Mosby, went down on the north side of the Charles B. Wheeler Downtown Airport.

McBride says the aircraft had flown over the Country Club Plaza before its pilot flew to the Wheeler airport and practiced a “touch and go” landing.

He says the plane soon lost power and came down at the airport. Although the plane’s landing gear is damaged, McBride says the plane didn’t turn over.
