MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) -- It was a scary and bumpy landing for a pilot and his passenger at the Manhattan Regional Airport Saturday when some of the plane's landing gear malfunctioned.

On April 27, 2013 at 3:30 PM, a single engine aircraft was coming in for landing at the airport when the nose gear failed to deploy and the nose touched down, bending a propeller and leaving scrapes on the underbelly of the plane.

The student pilot, 21-year-old Jarrett Brookhouser of Junction City, and his passenger, 29-year-old John Bolton of Junction City were not injured, according the Kansas Highway Patrol's crash log online.

The damaged airplane was towed to the airport’s hangar.
