A plane landed at Killeen's Skylark Field without landing gear on Friday morning.

Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Roberts said the pilot reported a problem with the plane's landing gear, so it came into Skylark Field and landed without wheels. The plane skidded to a stop. 

Roberts said there were no injuries.

Lynn Lunsford with the FAA confirmed the incident. 

"A small aircraft was practicing landings and experiences a collapsed landing gear," Lunsford said.
