The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a plane crash in Mansfield.

The crash happened around 12:30 p.m. at Lahm Air Force Base.

Troopers said the 1980 Beech Model 58 fixed wing, multi-engine plane's landing gear failed to open. The pilot was able to successfully land the plane without incident despite the defective landing gear.

The plane was flown by a 68-year-old man with four passengers on board. 

No injuries were reported. 

Alcohol does not appear to be a contributing factor.
