A Delta Air Lines flight at Charlotte Douglas International Airport in North Carolina made a safe landing with its nose landing gear up on Wednesday morning, according to the Federal Aviation Administration, Your Content has learned.

No injuries were reported in the incident, which resulted in the closure of the runway while airport crews worked to remove the plane.

The flight, operated on a Boeing 717, departed from Atlanta with 96 customers, two pilots, and three flight attendants on board.

Upon approaching Charlotte, the pilots received an indication of an “unsafe” nose gear. To investigate further, the crew executed a missed approach procedure.

Air traffic controllers at Charlotte’s control tower visually inspected the plane and confirmed that the nose landing gear doors were open but the nose gear itself had not deployed.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board will conduct investigations to determine the cause of the nose gear malfunction.
