A small airplane on a training flight was damaged in a hard landing at the airport in Pasco early Friday afternoon.
A Bergstrom Aircraft flight school instructor and a student were onboard, with the instructor flying the Cessna 172.
Neither was injured, but the airplane had substantial damage.
Malin Bergstrom, president of Bergstrom Aircraft, said the plane did not have engine failure. The cause of the hard landing is not yet known.

Buck Taft, deputy director of the Tri-Cities Airport, said the plane skidded off the runway during the landing.
The incident happened a little after 12:30 p.m. and the plane had been removed by about 1:15 p.m.
