Mechanical issues trigger hard landings at 2 Broward airports

PEMBROKE PINES, FLA. (WSVN) - Mechanical issues caused the pilots of two small planes to make hard landings at separate Broward County airports.

A small Cessna 152 sustained damage to its front propeller after landing on its nose at North Perry Airport in Pembroke Pines, just after 8:15 a.m., Wednesday.

7Skyforce HD hovered above the scene as the aircraft remained tilted forward.

Less than two hours later, a pilot preparing to take off at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport started experiencing landing gear trouble, resulting in the Beech E-55 twin engine plane landing on its belly.

No injuries were reported in either incident.

The aircraft in the North Perry landing is registered to Wayman Aviation Academy.
