MILWAUKEE — A runway at Mitchell International Airport was closed for an hour after a plane made an emergency landing late Friday night.

Airport spokesperson Harold Mester says a small cargo plane from Oshkosh suffered a landing gear problem around 10:30 pm. It remained stopped on the runway after landing.

The pilot was the only person on the cargo plane.

No one was injured.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration registry, the airplane is a Beechcraft 99, built in 1968. It’s registered to Freight Runners Express Inc. in Milwaukee.

Another flight that landed after the cargo plane was not able to get back to the terminal. Buses went to the plane to bring passengers back to the terminal.
