DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will be investigating after a plane crashed at Dayton International Airport.

According to Montgomery County Regional Dispatch, a light aircraft headed for Dayton crashed near the airport around the 3600 block of Terminal Drive in Dayton. First responders received a call to respond Friday around 2:59 p.m.  A representative for the Dayton International Airport says the plane that crashed is “not a commercial aircraft or flight.”

The FAA says four people were on board a twin-engine Cessna 310, when the nose gear reportedly collapsed during the landing process at the airport.

“Commercial flights were halted for approximately 30 minutes,” a release said. “The airport has three active runways. The airport reopened, utilizing one runway until the damaged aircraft was removed.”

No one was reported to have been injured, according to the airport.
