VAIL, Colo. (AP) - All five people aboard a private jet escaped injury when the aircraft's nose gear collapsed during landing at Eagle County Regional Airport.
Airport aviation director Greg Phillips tells The Vail Daily, the Cessna Citation aircraft was landing at about 2 p.m. Friday and skidded to a stop near the end of the runway. The group had left Hot Springs, Ark., earlier in the day.
Phillips says the plane was removed from the runway Friday afternoon, and no commercial flights were affected.
