Pilot OK after landing without wheels deployed at Felts Field

From staff reports

A small plane crash-landed at Felts Field early Tuesday, causing damage to the propeller and underside of the aircraft but leaving the pilot uninjured.

The plane touched down without its landing gear deployed at about 1:40 a.m., according to the Spokane Valley Fire Department.

The pilot climbed out of the plane before emergency personnel arrived. They found no sign of leaking fuel or other hazards.

Both runways at Felts Field were shut down after the crash, which is under investigation.

Officials did not release the pilot’s name but said she was the only occupant of the aircraft.
