NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Metro Nashville police and federal investigators are trying to locate the person responsible for crash-landing and leaving a small plane at a closed airpark.
Metro police said in a release that a 1961 Beechcraft twin-engine airplane went down on grass at the closed Cornelia Fort Airpark in East Nashville.
The statement says a maintenance worker with the parks department found the plane Saturday morning near the runway and notified police Sunday because it wasn't moved.
Police say it appears the landing gear became inoperable and the pilot or pilots belly-landed the plane, which is registered to Great American Transportation Inc. There is no indication anyone suffered serious injury in the landing.
