Yeager Airport has reopened after it was temporarily closed after a small aircraft had to perform an emergency landing without its landing gear.

Yeager Airport is closed after a small aircraft had to perform a landing without its landing gear.

Just after 5 p.m., a twin-engine Piper Aztec aircraft with the tail number N499CR landed without a landing gear after it reported an engine failure, according to the airport.

The pilot was the only person on board and no injuries were reported.

The plane is currently on the runway and the airport is waiting for clearance from the FAA to remove the plane and open to the airport.

The airport said passengers should check with airlines before departing to see how their flights will be affected.
