WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (WSVN) -- A landing gear collapse caused a small airplane to crash land at a South Florida airport, Sunday.
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue responded to the scene around 3:27 p.m. at North Palm Beach County General Aviation Airport, located at 11300 Aviation Blvd. near Palm Beach Gardens.
Upon arrival, reports say units found a Lancair 320 fixed wing single-engine airplane nose down on the main runway.
