JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - No injuries are being reported after landing gear collapsed as a single-engine plane landed at Jackson Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport.

Federal Aviation spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen says the nose gear collapse happened about 12:10 p.m. Thursday when the Beechcraft Bonanza landed.

FAA records show the plane is registered to Prime Logic Inc., a Tupelo business. Arthur Dillon, an employee with Prime Logic, said the only person on board was Shannon Dillon, the company’s owner and pilot of the plane. Arthur Dillon says Shannon Dillon was not injured.

The runway was closed until the aircraft could be removed.

A spokeswoman for the airport did not return calls seeking comment Thursday afternoon.

Bergen says the FAA is investigating.
