A single-engine plane made an emergency landing at Nashville International Airport when its landing gear did not deploy.

The Metro Nashville Airport Authority Department of Public Safety responded to an aircraft emergency at approximately 1:28 p.m.

The call came from a single engine Piper PA-24 Comanche with only the pilot onboard.

The aircraft landing gear did not extend forcing the pilot to make the emergency landing. Runway 20L was closed with no damage to the runway. 

It caused no delays because two other runways remained open.
