An airplane that scraped its wing on the runway at Colorado Springs Airport about 9 a.m. Saturday prompted an emergency response and closed some runways.

The pilot of the two-seat plane was performing touch-and-go landings when the tip of one of the plane's wings scraped the ground, causing a fuel spill, an airport official said.

The pilot, the only person on board, was uninjured, and the aircraft suffered light damage, officials said.

All runways were reopened before noon, officials said.
