(Richmond International Airport)


Sandston, Va. ( - UPDATE:  All runways have now reopened.



A private plane, with a landing gear issue, veered off a runway at Richmond International Aiport this morning.  The plane landed at 8:49 a.m, with what turned out to be a sideways landing gear.  The gear ended up forcing the plan off the runway and onto the grass.

There were five people on board, but no injuries.  Damage appeared limited to the gear itself.

State Police and the FAA are investigating.  Airport operations continued on the other runways.
