SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- Officials at Salina Regional Airport are investigating the belly landing of a small commuter plane with only the pilot and co-pilot on board.

Kansas Public Radio reports the SeaPort Airlines Pilatus PC-12 turboprop plane came down with its landing gear up shortly after 10 a.m. Friday. Medical personnel reported no serious injuries to the two crew members.

A spokeswoman for the Salina Airport Authority says it's not yet known whether pilot error or equipment failure was to blame.

SeaPort Airlines is based in Oregon and flies to nine states.
