— A small plane carrying three people descended quickly and made a hard landing at Raleigh Durham International Airport Monday evening, according to an airport spokesman.

The CASA aircraft had some mechanical issues while it landed, causing it to skid off the runway into the grass, spokesman Andrew Sawyer said.

All three people on board got out safely.

No other information was released.
