No one hurt after plane makes emergency landing in El Dorado

May 14, 2019

EL DORADO, Ark. (AP) — Authorities say no one was hurt when a twin-engine plane was forced to make an emergency landing after its front landing gear stopped working.

The El Dorado Fire Department says two flight instructors were aboard the plane when it made the emergency landing Monday afternoon at the South Arkansas Regional Airport in El Dorado.

According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette , video that captured the landing showed the plane’s nose tip forward as it came to a stop on the runway.

Fire Chief Chad Mosby says the pilots had taken off a few hours earlier without realizing there was a problem with the landing equipment. Mosby calls the situation a “textbook landing.”
