A runway at the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport was closed for an hour Wednesday after a single-engine plane lost control on landing and damaged its landing gears.
No one was injured in the accident, and there was no damage to other aircraft, according to airport assistant general manager Craig Piper.
Around 2:15 p.m., the small aircraft attempted to land and its tail end flipped, causing significant damage to the landing gears. The plane was immobile and had to be removed with a utility trailer.
One commercial flight was delayed for about 45 minutes.

According to Piper, though the crash was minor, the National Transportation Safety Board was notified and will decide whether to investigate further.
Piper said small crashes occasionally happen at the airport. On March 5, a similar incident occurred involving a single-engine plane attempting to land. No one was injured in that incident.
