KUSA - A daring pilot successfully completed a gear-up landing at Centennial Airport on Sunday.

Around 11 a.m., the pilot of a Cessna Cardinal called the airport's tower to report gear issues.

Airport workers visually confirmed the problem, and the pilot completed a risky, gear-up landing.

The main part of the aircraft is intact, but the engine and propeller were damaged.

The 10/28 runway reopened around 3 p.m. The pilot, the only person in the plane, walked away uninjured.
