DALLAS (AP) — A World War II-era military plane has made a belly landing at Dallas Executive Airport.
Officials say the pilot was not injured.
The Federal Aviation Administration says the P-51 Mustang sustained extensive damage in Wednesday’s accident.
FAA records show the single-engine plane is registered to the American Airpower Heritage Flying Museum. The museum is a subsidiary of the Commemorative Air Force.
