HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT)- Emergency responders rushed to Huntsville International Airport Friday around 12:50 as the pilot of a private plane reported an issue with nose gear.

Thankfully, airport officials say the plane landed safely. The airport’s East runway was closed as crews responded. Spokeswoman Jana Kuner said no flights were delayed because of this because there is another runway to use. There were a handful of flight delays on Friday afternoon but Kuner says they were not related to the emergency response.

Kuner said the pilot was able to exit the plane uninjured. There was no medical attention needed, and the heavy response of emergency crews is standard as a precaution.

Kuner said the plane was a small, private Beechcraft aircraft. She is not sure where the pilot was coming from upon landing at Huntsville International airport.
