A plane coming from Antwerp landed without landing gear at Liège Airport on early Wednesday afternoon, a spokesperson told Belga News Agency.

The Beechcraft King Air twin-engine business jet, that had recently flown to Poland and France, was carrying out a training session, which included "touch-and-go" landings.

It landed, without its landing gear, at the airport at around 13:15 on Wednesday. Both passengers of the plane, the pilot and his student, were unharmed, but the same can not be said for the plane's propellers.

According to preliminary reports, the landing gear failed not deploy owing to a technical issue.

The main runway had to be closed while the aircraft's damage was being assessed, while another, smaller runway remained operational. At approximately 16:00 on Wednesday, the jet was still on the runway.
