Landing gear collapse at Colo airport; no injuries

DENVER (AP) - Officials say one of the main landing gear collapsed on a small commercial plane after it landed at Denver International Airport, but none of the 11 passengers and crew was hurt.

Airport spokesman Jeff Green says the Great Lakes Aviation plane had almost come to a stop when the landing gear collapsed at about 6:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Great Lakes spokeswoman Kassi Mohlenkamp says the airline doesn't yet know the cause or the extent of the damage.

Green says the runway was closed while the twin-turboprop Beech 1900 was being moved. He says five other runways remained open and no other flights were affected.

The plane was on a flight from Pueblo to Denver. A bus took the passengers to the concourse.

The airline is based in Cheyenne, Wyo.
