In the accompanying photo, Williarm R. Fairchild International Airport crews prepare to hoist a small plane off the runway after its landing gear collapsed between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. today.

The main runway was closed briefly, according to Jerry Ludke, Port of Port Angeles airport and marinas manager.

"We had a minor issue," he said.

The runway was checked after the plane was pulled off and reopened.

No information about the pilot, or any other details, were released.
