Runway shut down briefly

PENSACOLA, Fla. -- A private plane's landing gear malfunctioned while landing at Pensacola International Airport Monday night. The landing gear of the single-engine plane gave way during the landing and the plane skidded partway down the runway on its belly. The pilot, the only one on board, was not injured, but the airport's north-south runway was closed for several hours. (Source: Pensacola News Journal, 12/31/13)
