LaGuardia Airport fully reopens after jet's hard landing

The Southwest Airlines jet whose nose gear collapsed after landing at a New York airport is being removed from the runway.

NEW YORK - (AP) - A New York City airport is fully operating again following the hard landing of a Southwest Airlines jet a day earlier.

A spokesman for the agency that runs LaGuardia Airport says the airport's second runway reopened Tuesday morning. The other runway had reopened Monday.

The nose gear on a Southwest plane arriving from Nashville, Tenn., collapsed after landing Monday. Officials say 10 passengers were treated at the scene, and six were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. The airport was closed for more than an hour.

Dallas-based Southwest says 150 people were on board.

The plane is being moved to a nearby hangar.

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