TUCSON, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

A single-engine plane has made a hard landing at Tucson International Airport, but authorities say all three people aboard walked away from the small aircraft.

Authorities say the Beechcraft Bonanza hard-landed at about 11:20 a.m. Monday in an area adjacent to one of the runways, which has been closed for safety reasons. They say the plane had just taken off from the airport when it experienced some sort of problem.

It wasn't immediately clear who owns the plane, and the names of the three aboard weren't immediately released.

Federal Aviation Administration officials say the agency will investigate the incident.
