A plane crash landed at Hamilton Airport on Friday morning after its landing gear failed.
Emergency services were alerted to the incident at 10:30am and the pilot was told by air traffic controllers to go into a holding pattern above the airport as emergency services responded.

Six fire engines were on the ground as the pilot received the all-clear to attempt a landing.
Once the twin-engine light plane landed, its front wheel immediately collapsed, sending its nose dramatically onto the tarmac.
No injuries resulted from the incident and emergency services were not required in what was a successful landing from the pilot involved.
Hamilton Airport chief executive Mark Morgan told Newshub that the aircraft is still on the runway and the facility has closed all air travel services.
