Okaloosa County officials say no one was hurt when a small plane skidded off the Bob Sikes Airport Runway.

They say an Aero Commander-560 twin engine aircraft attempted to land at the airport but its landing gear was damaged, causing it to skid off the runway.

We're told crews are working to remove the damaged aircraft from the airfield. The runway will remained closed until the plane is moved and inspections are finished.

The North Okaloosa Fire District, airport staff, EMS and the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office-Airport Security Unit and the Fixed Base Operator-Emerald Coast Aviation responded to the incident.
