CLARENDON, Vt. (AP) — No one was hurt when a small plane crashed at the Rutland-Southern Vermont Regional Airport in Clarendon on Saturday, Vermont State Police said.

The pilot, who is from Philadelphia and was the only occupant, told police that he failed to lower the landing gear and the aircraft landed on its belly, authorities said.

The runway was closed for a while Saturday afternoon while the aircraft, a 1961 Mooney, was removed, police said.
