COLUMBUS (WCMH)– A small plane’s landing gear malfunctioned, causing the plane to skid to a halt at Ohio State University’s Don Scott Field in northwest Columbus Monday.
According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the plane’s pilot, Paul M. Emaus, 54, of Hudsonville, Michigan, was attempting to land his Beechcraft Bonanza, a fixed-wing, single-engine aircraft, Monday at approximately 2 p.m.
The landing gear on the plane failed to activate, causing the underside of the aircraft to skid along the runway until it came to a stop.
Emaus was the only person aboard the plane. He was not injured.
The FAA will be investigating the crash.
