    Chris Collins, airport director, tells WMIX that the twin engine turbo prop plane licensed to bee aviation out of Sturgis, Ky., came in for a landing, but the front landing gear was not down. 

    He says the pilot had green lights, indicating that all the landing gear was down and locked, but for some reason the front was not out. 

    The plane landed nose down and slid on the runway, damaging the front, the engines and propellers on the engines.  Both pilots did not sustain any injuries and the plane was later towed to a hanger. The Mount Vernon Fire Department was also on scene as a precaution.
