HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A central Pennsylvania airport that was temporarily shut down by a disabled plane has resumed normal operations.

Officials at Harrisburg International Airport say flights should be back on schedule starting Wednesday morning.

Spokesman Scott Miller says the airport's only runway closed Tuesday around 9:30 p.m. after a private plane touched down and its landing gear collapsed.

The pilot, who was the only passenger, was unhurt. But the single-engine aircraft remained disabled on the runway for about two hours.

The airport announced shortly after midnight that normal operations had resumed.
