Landing gear failure puts plane on its nose at Venice Airport

VENICE (WWSB) - No one was injured when a plane landed at Venice Airport and ended up on its nose when the landing gear failed.

Authorities say the single-engine, four-seat Beechcraft Bonanza landed without incident shortly after 5pm on Wednesday. When it was taxing to exit the runway, the pilot, Dan Gualandri, applied the brakes and his nose gear failed, causing the front to nose into the pavement.

Gualandri, who is the Director of Maintenance at Sarasota Avionics, was the sole occupant of the plane and was uninjured.
