Plane Lands Safely After Warning Light Comes On

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Ten passengers on a Learjet bound for Lansing had quite a scare Wednesday morning.

As the plane approached Lansing's Capital Regional International Airport, officials say a light that alerts the pilot when the plane's landing gear is not malfunctioning came on. Airport officials say emergency crews at the terminal were prepared for an emergency crash landing, but it did not come to that.

The pilot detoured to check the landing gear and it deployed successfully. He was able to make a safe landing.

"Everyone took the steps necessary to respond to the situation so the public safety response was here and ready to handle any type of situation that would come with the aircraft coming into Lansing," said Nicole Noll-Williams, Director of Marketing, Passenger Development, Capital Region International Airport.
