Landing gear collapses as jet lands at OH airport

CINCINNATI (AP) — Authorities say no injuries were reported when a small private jet’s landing gear apparently collapsed after it touched down on a runway at a Cincinnati airport.

Cincinnati fire department officials say the twin-engine aircraft landed at Lunken Airport about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday. Airport manager Fred Anderton says a pilot and co-pilot and one passenger were on board.

Authorities say the plane landed on its belly after the landing gear apparently collapsed and was resting on its left wing, after which fire officials say they were called to the scene.

Authorities say some fuel leaked, but there was no fire.
