No injuries in rough landing of small plane at Tampa airport

TAMPA -- A small plane carrying three people had a rough landing at Tampa International Airport Tuesday evening, but no one was injured, Tampa Fire Rescue said.

The plane was scheduled to land at the Tampa Executive Airport near Thonotosassa but landed at TIA after it began experiencing equipment problems, said TIA spokeswoman Janet Zink.

The plane's nose gear became stuck but the plane landed safely, said fire rescue spokesman Jason Penny. The rough landing caused the plane to skid about 10 feet, Zink said.

A photo from fire rescue showed the plane coming to rest with its nose on the runway.
