(The Mooney apparently didn't know his gear wasn't down, all ok thankfully)

WINTER HAVEN, Fla. – A small plane landed Saturday morning at Winter Haven Regional Airport without its landing gear engaged, according to police.

Winter Haven firefighters responded to the runway around 11:15 a.m., the police department said in a statement.  The plane managed to land safely, police said, adding there was no fuel leak nor any other hazardous situations as a result.

No injuries were reported in the landing either, but police could not provide any further information about the aircraft or how many people were on board, the statement reads.
