An emergency landing by a small airplane shut down two landing strips Friday night and stopped commercial flights.

The small plane reported having engine problems and when it landed its gear did not deploy all the way.

No one on the plane was hurt, but because of the mechanical issues it is stuck at the crossing point of two runways.

The Airport said it may take an hour before the plane can be moved and commercial flights can resume.

The Airport spokesperson said they can use one runway at their discretion until the plane is gone.
