 An aircraft that had an issue with landing gear temporarily blocked the runway at Asheville Regional Airport Monday evening, spokeswoman Tina Kinsey said.

The landing gear of the Socata TBM-700 was not functioning around 3:45 p.m. as it was landing, resulting in blockage for all departures or arrivals until about 5:15 p.m., Kinsey said.

"It was a little more than an hour the runway was closed while airport crew worked to clear the aircraft and reopen the runway," she said.

No injuries were reported.
