AIRCRAFT LANDED GEAR UP, NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE.
A single-engine plane made an emergency landing at the Nashville International Airport Tuesday afternoon after its landing gear failed, airport officials said.
The Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority Department of Public Safety responded to an aircraft emergency at 1:28 p.m involving a general aviation aircraft (single engine Piper PA-24 Comanche) after the pilot reported that the aircraft's landing gear did not extend, airport spokeswoman Shannon Sumrall said
Shortly afterward, the plane landed on Runway 20L, Sumrall said.
No one was injured and the runway was not damaged, but emergency crews had to shut down the runway.
That runway was later reopened.
Sumrall said two other runways remained open and that the airport did not experience any delays.
