An airport spokesperson says the Beechcraft Bonanza was experiencing a malfunction with its landing gear.  After several low passes, the aircraft glides in and successfully lands on its belly, sliding along the runway until coming to a stop.

All four passengers walked away unhurt.  They were seen outside the plane hugging and giving each other high-fives.
