Small Plane Lands Without Nose Gear At Will Rogers Airport

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

A small plane made a rough landing at Will Rogers Airport after the landing gear in its nose failed to deploy.

The pilot of the aircraft, a KingAir 200, gently touched down with the rear landing gear before the nose tilted downward and dragged along the runway. Authorities say the plane did sustain significant damage to the nose and propellers as a result of the landing.

The pilot was the only person on board and was not injured. The cause of the malfunction is not known at this time.

The runway involved is currently closed. Airport officials do not expect this incident to affect any other flight departures or arrivals.
