    The City of Fort Worth says a small aircraft went off the runway at Meacham International Airport Monday afternoon.

    Meacham Airport manager James Burris says the Piper Cherokee had landed and then ran off the "1735" runway to the north.

    Burris says the nose gear gave out in front which caused the plane to go off the runway when it couldn't properly stop. The pilot was the only person on board. No injuries were reported.

    Burris said the runway was closed during the investigation.
