ANKARA, Turkey—An official says a plane carrying 156 people scraped along the runway on its engine at a Turkish airport after its landing gear collapsed. No one was injured.

Mehmet Yavuz, deputy governor of the southern province of Antalya, says the gear of the Sky Airlines flight from Baden Baden, Germany, broke at landing at Antalya Airport on Monday. The Boeing plane tipped onto its right engine as it continued down the runway and eventually came to a halt.

Yavuz says no one was injured and other flights at the airport were not affected.

It was not clear why the landing gear collapsed. Sky Airlines was not available for comment.
