MESA, Ariz. -- The landing gear of a small plane collapsed Wednesday night as the aircraft touched down at PhxMesa Gateway Airport.

The pilot reported some trouble with the landing gear as the plane was approaching the airport.

The pilot was the only person on board and was not hurt. Crews from the Mesa Fire Dept. responded to the scene.

As the plane's belly hit the ground there were reportedly some sparks.

The fixed-wing single-engine Cessna is registered to a business in Phoenix.
