A small plane's nose landing gear collapsed Monday morning at Prescott Municipal Airport (Ernest A. Love Field), but no one was injured.

UPDATE:

PRESCOTT – A small airplane made a rough landing at Prescott’s Ernest A. Love Field Wednesday, April 27, when its nose landing gear failed to properly deploy, a Prescott Fire spokesman said.

About 8 a.m., the pilot warned the airport’s tower that he had a front-gear warning light, Firefighter/Paramedic Conrad Jackson said.

The plane flew by the tower and controllers confirmed the gear was still up. Fire crews responded and prepared for the landing, Jackson said.

It touched down on Runway 21-Left and tipped forward onto its nose, destroying the propeller, but did not overturn.

The pilot was not injured and walked away from the aircraft.
