Cessna Aircraft Makes Emergency Landing at FAI

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Just after 9 p.m. Friday night, a Cessna 401 aircraft lost power and had to make an emergency landing at Fairbanks International Airport. Due to loss of power, the landing gear failed to deploy, so the pilot had to skid to a stop on the runway without landing gear.

Airport personnel responded, and the pilot and two passengers were uninjured. The personal aircraft was damaged and had to be removed from the runway, and the airport resumed normal operations a little after 11 p.m. Friday night.

The National Transportation Safety Board is a national organization that investigates all aircraft incidents, and they are currently conducting an investigation into the incident.
