MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT - The landing gear of a small cargo plane collapsed at the Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport on Friday night, closing two runways.

The incident occurred just after 8 p.m. at the intersection of MSP's two runways, according to airport spokesperson Pat Hogan.

He said the left main landing gear collapsed and the plane spun into grassy area off to the side of a runway.

The Metro liner aircraft which was hauling cargo is owned by Bemidji Aviation.

The pilot was the only person on board and he was uninjured, Hogan said.

He said that because of time of incident on a Friday night, the closures have had "very little impact on operations."
