MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — No one was hurt Monday night when a small plane made an emergency landing at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

The plane was supposed to land in Duluth, but was re-routed to the Twin Cities because its front landing gear wasn’t working.

The Star Tribune reports the plane landed around 6:30 p.m., using its back wheels, then touching down with just the nose.

Six people were on the flight out of North Carolina. They were all OK.

The runway was closed for a time while the plane was removed, but officials say that did not affect airport operations.
