LaGuardia Closed After Southwest Landing

Air traffic was shut down at LaGuardia Airport early Monday evening, after a plane landed without its nose gear. Emergency crews surrounded Southwest Airlines Flight 345, from Nashville to LaGuardia, after the landing Monday afternoon.

The Federal Aviation Administration said a ground stop program was in effect, and no flights were arriving or departing at the airport, as of the 6 p.m. hour. The airport technically remained open.
