Emergency Landing

By Katie Weber | 

A plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Russell Springs Wednesday, after having trouble with its landing gear.

The twin-engine private craft was on its way to Russell County from Lexington with only the pilot on board.

When it got there, the plane had to circle the airport for an hour to burn off most of its fuel.

After it finally touched down, the landing gear collapsed and the plane had to make a belly landing.

The pilot was able to land the plane safely and no one was injured.

EMS and emergency crews were on hand at the airport to ensure safety for everyone involved.
