TELLURIDE, Colo. (AP) — A plane's landing gear collapsed as it arrived at the Telluride Regional Airport in Colorado and skidded to a stop. But no injuries were reported among the 12 people on board, who included members of the team behind an upcoming book and documentary about famed author J.D. Salinger

The San Miguel County Sheriff's Office says the twin-engine Beechcraft 1900 landed just after 1 p.m. and suffered damage to the left engine propellers and wing.

"Salinger" author Shane Salerno, who was not on the flight, confirmed members of the film and book team were on board along with family members of a person interviewed for the project. The Los Angeles Times reported the team travelled to Colorado for the Telluride Film Festival.

It was not clear how many people connected with the film and book were on board.
