A plane has landed safely at the Pueblo Regional Airport after having to make an emergency landing.

Mark Lovin, the airport director, tells 11 News that the main landing gear malfunctioned as the single-engine plane approached the airport. The pilot, from Pueblo, was uninjured, although the plane did obtain minor damage on its underside. The nose gear on the plane, a Cesna 210, deployed, which helped minimize damage. There were no other people on board.

Lovin said the pilot was "very competent." He told 11 News that emergency procedures were followed, and all involved came out with the best outcome for the situation.

The airport remained open during the emergency.
