South Metro Fire spokeswoman Becky O'Guin says a King Air Twin Turbo Prop had landing gear troubles and skidded on its nose around 8:15 p.m. The airport says the pilot held the front of the plane in the air and coasted in on the rear wheels as long as he could before he had to set the front of the plane down.
South Metro says there were six people on board and one person was taken to the hospital. That was the person with the medical condition, who was already supposed to be taken to the hospital.
There was no fire from the hard landing and the plane had minimal damage.
