CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Two people onboard a single-engine airplane walked away uninjured after the aircraft landed with its gear up at Centennial Airport Monday.

Crews from South Metro Fire Rescue responded to the airport on a report of an aircraft emergency around 2 p.m.

The Rockwell Commander 112 was coming in for a landing with its gear up. It’s unclear why the landing gear was not in place for the landing.

The Commander landed on runway 17R and the two onboard exited the aircraft without injuries, South Metro said in a Tweet.

Firefighters said a small fire occurred but was extinguished prior to crews arriving on scene.
