NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Officials say faulty landing gear resulted in a plane falling on its side at the Charleston International Airport Thursday afternoon.
Charlene Gunnels says the pilot of a 421 twin-engine Cessna is alright after the plane's right landing gear collapsed, causing a flat tire.
Gunnels says the pilot was the only one in the plane at the time of the incident.
According to the airport's Twitter account, a short runway was closed while officials responded to the plane, but airline operations were not affected.
The plane has since been removed, and the airport is operating normally.
