Jan 19, 2014

Authorities say no one was hurt when a single-engine airplane ended up landing in a field near an Albuquerque airport.

The Albuquerque Fire Departments says the small plane missed its landing at Double Eagle Airport because of mechanical problems.

Fire authorities say the airplane ended up in a field south of the airport. They did not say how many passengers were onboard.

They say the aircraft appears not to have sustained any damage.

Double Eagle Airport is a general aviation airport that doesn't handle commercial passenger traffic.
