No injuries were reported after a T-53A aircraft conducting flight training operations landed off course Wednesday on Air Force Academy grounds.

Academy spokesman Warthen Meade said the aircraft landed about 9 a.m. on the north part of the military installation near Interstate 25 with a student and an instructor on board. Neither person was injured.

The T-35A is a single-engine aircraft used by the Air Force Academy for pilot training. The civilian equivalent is the Cirrus SR-20.

Air Force Academy officials said the incident remains under investigation.
