The pilot in the tailwheel-equipped airplane reported that, during the landing roll on the flat, soft dirt, dry lakebed, he "could not get full deflection of the left brake as it felt as if something were underneath the pedal." The airplane veered to the right and the right wing struck the ground. The airplane bounced and subsequently the left wing struck the ground. When the airplane stopped, the pilot could not find any objects that could have impeded the range of pedal movement.

HENRICO COUNTY, Virginia -- No one was hurt when a small, private plane ran off a runway at Richmond International Airport Wednesday morning.

Airport officials said the plane's landing gear was not oriented correctly and caused the plane to veer off the runway.

"At approximately 8:29 a.m., a private jet (Hawker) with five people onboard declared an emergency due to landing gear issues while about six minutes out from RIC," an airport spokesperson said. "The aircraft landed on RWY 16/34, but a “sideways” nose gear forced the aircraft to veer off the runway. It became stuck in the grass midfield between RWY 16/34 and TWY L."

Virginia State Police, who responded to the scene, says the FAA has been notified and are on scene assessing the situation. State police called the damage to the plane “minimal.”

The crash remains under investigation.

The longer runway was closed pending an investigation into the landing. It has since been reopened.

A private aircraft was forced to make an emergency landing at Richmond International Airport on Wednesday morning due to issues with a “sideways” nose gear.

The Richmond International Airport (KRIC) in Virginia confirmed the plane’s crew declared an emergency shortly before 8:30 a.m., citing trouble with the landing gear. Upon landing, the airport wrote on Twitter that the “sideways” nose gear forced the aircraft to “veer” off the runway and into a section of grass.

In a photo shared by the airport, the Hawker jet can be seen sitting off to the side of the runway, backed up against a ditch.

A representative for RIC confirmed there were no injuries reported by the five people onboard the private plane. In an emailed message to Fox News, the representative also likened the issue to a car’s wheels suddenly becoming stuck sideways.

Virginia State Police, as well as the FAA and the Flight Standards District Offices, will be investigating, the airport confirmed in a tweet.

The airport had also closed one of its two runways, Runway 16/34, in the wake of the incident. It is expected to reopen soon.

“Airport operations are not significantly impacted,” a representative said.
