Just talked with some of my crew members who are there. From what they are told, it was a smaller plane, everyone is okay and the pilot may have made an error and just landed with the gear up.

Yeah, big whoops, but he's not the first guy to ever do that. :)

Yep, Station 51 is the TFD station at the airport. Unit 51 is one of the big Titan rigs. 3,000 gallons of water and 390 of foam. Sounds like a butt kickin' machine to me. More info on Station 51 can be found here:

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The main runway at Tulsa International
Airport was closed for about two hours today after an aircraft made
an emergency landing without landing gear.
The plane, a World War Two-vintage T-Six trainer, landed on its
belly at the airport this morning. The pilot report that the
aircraft's landing gear malfunctioned and would not come down.
Authorities say the plane landed safely and that neither the
pilot nor his passenger were injured.
Tulsa Fire Department Captain Mitch Parnell says fire officials
and the Oklahoma Air National Guard helped remove the aircraft from
the runway.
Parnell says the landing caused no delays in the landing or
departure of commercial air carrier aircraft.
