A small plane with landing gear problems made an emergency "belly landing" just before noon Friday at San Jose International Airport.
SJC spokesperson Rosemary Barnes said the small plane had four people onboard but no injuries reported.
"It was a good landing," said private pilot Lon Minier. "Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing."
Minier has flown private planes for 15 years, he’s one of about a dozen people who came to SJC to watch.
“I heard it was on and wanted to see it," he said.
The pilot and three passengers took off from Idaho and originally tried to land at the Reid Hillview Airport in San Jose, but were unsuccessful.
“They made a low pass over by the tower so the tower could look at their gear, and see if it was actually not down or in a bad position," Minier said.
The pilot then decided to land at SJC, and circled around, burning off fuel for 90 minutes.
"Obviously a lot of nervousness for his passengers and his well-being," Barnes said.
The pilot did not want to comment.
Both runways at the airport were temporarily closed while crews responded to the incident. Runways started to reopen shortly after 12:30 p.m.
Delays are expected to continue the rest of the day.
