UPDATE: TYLER (KYTX) - Small plane makes emergency landing at Tyler Pounds Regional Airport.

A small plane made an emergency landing this morning at the Tyler Pounds Regional Airport.  Emergency responders were notified at approximately 11:30 a.m.  The Tyler Fire Department responded with two aircraft rescue firefighting units, along with multiple engines from fire stations in the City.

The pilot was the only occupant aboard the four-passenger Beechcraft Bonanza, which was carrying approximately 250 gallons of fuel at the time.  Upon takeoff from Tyler Pounds Regional, the pilot recognized a potential issue with the plane.  He was able to notify personnel at the air traffic control tower, who visually verified that the aircraft had an issue with the nose gear.  Air traffic control quickly notified airport personnel, along with emergency responders stationed at the airport.  Per protocol, additional units with the Tyler Fire Department responded to the scene.

Firefighters and airport personnel were on the scene prior to the emergency landing.  The pilot was able to successfully land the aircraft without the nose gear.  No injuries were reported and the plane should be moved from the runway shortly.  For safety purposes, Runway 22 was shut down throughout the incident.
