Emergency Crews Respond To Plane Landing at Easterwood Airport

An overnight landing at Easterwood Airport prompts an emergency response.

The incident happened around 10:30 Friday night when the pilot of a single engine Cessna plane was concerned one of his landing gears had not deployed.

John Happ, the Director of Aviation at the airport tell us the landing gear ended up being fine and was likely a burned out bulb on the plane's instrument panel that prompted the concern.

Emergency responders were on the ground as a precaution for the landing in Colege Station.

The plane landed safely.
