Light plane makes hard landing at Gillespie Field

Posted: Updated:

EL CAJON (CNS) - A light plane with faulty landing gear made a non-injury hard landing at Gillespie Field Thursday.

The front wheel assembly of the twin-engine aircraft apparently collapsed when it touched down at the El Cajon general-aviation airport shortly before 4:30 p.m., sending the plane's nose scraping along the runway, a Heartland Fire & Rescue dispatcher said.

No injuries were reported and no fire resulted, according to city spokeswoman Monica Zech. It was not immediately clear how many people were aboard the fixed-wing aircraft at the time of the mishap.
