KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Two occupants of a small plane escaped a scary situation after making a rough landing Saturday at the Charles B. Wheeler downtown airport.

Joe McBride, a representative with the Kansas City airport, said a small plane’s nose wheel collapsed Saturday afternoon, causing the plane to end up on its propeller.

Two people were on the plane, but did not suffer any injuries. The Cirrus SR22T (N411SE)  was flying from Denver to Charles B. Wheeler downtown airport.

The incident happened 3 p.m. and caused a temporary shutdown of one runway at the downtown airport, but the other runway is still open.
