COLLEGE STATION (AP) – Two single-engine planes landed safely after a mid-air collision that damaged the landing gear of one of the aircrafts and shattered the windshield of the other.

A two-seat Cessna carrying a Texas A&M student pilot and her instructor was flying southeast of College Station on Friday when its right wheel collided with the other plane.

The pilot was alone aboard the second plane and he was able to land the four-seat Cirrus at nearby Easterwood Airport.

He suffered cuts from pieces of the windshield. The two people in the Cessna were not injured.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the planes were operating in uncontrolled airspace so neither was required to be in contact with air traffic controllers. The agency is investigating.
