LAS VEGAS (AP) - A small plane has made a belly-flop landing in Las Vegas and authorities say the three people on board weren’t hurt.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the twin-engine Beechcraft E90 King Air went down shortly after 3:30 p.m. Friday at McCarran International Airport.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the landing gear collapsed when the plane landed.

Airport spokeswoman Christine Crews tells the paper that the plane landed on its belly to the south of a runway.

There was no fire.



The plane’s propellers appeared to have received minor damage.

Crews tells the Review-Journal that a nearby runway was closed until the plane was removed but there weren’t any additional airport delays.
