On January 27, a Cape Air Cessna 402C on Flight 9KI had its landing gear fail while completing Flight 1180 from Manistee, Michigan, to O’Hare International Airport. There were no injuries, but the landing gear collapse did temporarily close Runway 27R, which happens to be one of the shortest of O’Hare International Airport’s eight runways.
Flight 9K1, operated by a Cessna 402C twin-piston engine aircraft, left Manistee, Michigan for O’Hare International Airport at 8:02 AM local on January 27 and was able to cross Lake Michigan without incident flying at less than 10,000 feet. It arrives at O’Hare International Airport at 8:15 AM where the nose landing gear collapsed during landing.

As per the above graphic, Flight 9K1 connects a small western Michigan airport in Manistee with the airport with the world’s most runways and many airlines in O'Hare International Airport.
