JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A small plane made an emergency landing Thursday evening at Craig Airport, four days after a plane missed the same runway and crashed in an Arlington neighborhood, killing all three on board.
Action News reporter Kristen Sell witnessed the plane touch down without its nose gear during a live report on the preliminary findings from the NTSB on last weekend's plane crash.
Emergency crews rushed over to the plane as it came to a halt with its nose resting on the runway.
Action News learned the pilot had trouble deploying the nose gear and made several fly-by's before bringing the plane in for landing.
According to the Federal Aviation Administration
records, the plane is registered to Mar-Tech Engineering LLC, based out of Delaware. According to state records
, Mar-Tech Engineering is a Florida limited liability company with an office on St. Johns Bluff Road in Jacksonville.
A spokesman for JAA told Action News one person was on board.
An employee at the airport said Craig Airport has two runways and the plane landed on an inactive runway. All other planes, according to the employee, used the other runway so the incident did not disrupt operations.
