PUNTA GORDA, Fla. (AP) -- A homemade plane crash-landed at a
Charlotte County airport after the landing gear came off.

The sheriff's office reports that 61-year-old Frank Schooley was
trying to land his single-engine plane Sunday afternoon. When the
landing gear hit the ground, it ripped off and caused the plane to
flip.

Schooley was not harmed in the crash. He declined medical
treatment at the scene.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the crash.
