A pilot attempting to land a plane at Buchanan Field Airport in Concord this morning overshot the runaway but touched down safely on a grassy patch adjacent to the runway, according to the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office.
      
At about 9:35 a.m., a citizen reported the plane next to the Buchanan Field Golf Course on a grassy section that is part of airport property, the sheriff's office said.

All landing gear was down when the pilot was descending to the airport, and the sheriff's office said the aircraft glided in and no one was injured.

The National Transportation Safety Board will lead the investigation of the incident, according to the sheriff's office.
