    AA plane undershoots runway

    DENVER (AP) � An American Airlines MD-80 undershot a runway at Denver International Airport by 1,000 feet Sunday, wiping out runway lights and damaging the plane's left landing gear and engine.
    None of the 103 passengers and five crew members aboard Flight 1115 from Dallas-Fort Worth was injured, American Airlines spokesman Tim Kincaid said.

    The plane landed safely and taxied normally to the gate but is out of service while crews repair the damage, he said.

    "It's a very unusual event," Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Donn Walker said.

    The plane landed about 10:38 a.m. on a paved surface short of Runway 35L.

    DIA spokeswoman Sally Covington said the runway was closed while an investigation continued. Airport operations were normal and no delays were expected.

    The FAA was investigating, Kincaid said.
