AIRCRAFT LANDED AND THE GEAR COLLAPSED, WACO, TEXAS.
A single-engine propeller airplane with four people aboard landed at Waco Regional Airport at about 6 p.m. with its landing gear still up and caused a runway to be closed for about six hours Friday evening, the Federal Aviation Administration reported.
No one was reported injured. FAA spokesman Lynn Lunsford of Fort Worth identified the craft as a Cessna 210. He did not identify the pilot, but the FAA website said the owner is John M. Meraviglia II of Austin.
Lunsford said the plane was en route from the Dallas-Fort Worth area to Austin when it had to be diverted because of an electrical problem.
“The plane came to rest on its belly on the runway,” Lunsford said. “The runway was closed until investigators could get there and the plane could be removed.”
Two Envoy Air flights had to be canceled.
