Federal authorities say a small aircraft has made a hard landing at a Long Island airport. No one was injured.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Jim Peters says the Cessna 152 hit the runway nose first at Brookhaven Airport at 9:40 a.m. Tuesday.

The pilot was the only person on board the private plane.

Peters said the small prop aircraft was registered to Mid Island Air Service at MacArthur Airport.

The FAA was investigating.
