NEW YORK (AP) — The Southwest Airlines jet whose nose gear collapsed after landing at a New York airport is being removed from the runway.

A spokesman for the agency that runs LaGuardia Airport says a crane has loaded the plane onto a flatbed. The plane will be taken to a hangar and then both the airport's runways will be back in service Tuesday morning.

The nose gear on the plane collapsed when the flight coming from Nashville, Ten.., landed at 5:40 p.m. Monday. Officials say 10 passengers were treated at the scene, and six were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Dallas-based Southwest says there were 150 people on board.

The airport was closed for more than an hour.

The FAA is investigating, as is the National Transportation Safety Board.
