Small Plane Lands to Safety After Landing Gear Fails

Posted under Uncategorized

Two Boy Scouts escaped injury Monday night when a single engine airplane they were flying in landed without its landing gear deployed.


According to officials with the Waukesha County Sheriff's Office, three people were onboard a single-engine Mooney airplane that took off from the Waukesha County Airport Crites Field Tuesday shortly after 7:30 p.m. The boys, a 17 year-old and an 18 year-old, were part of a Boy Scouts Young Eagles Flight. 


The Mooney M20 plane took off from rites and was forced to belly-land after about 30 minutes, according to Waukesha County Sheriff's Capt. Frank McElderry. The plane was piloted by a 60 year-old man from Germantown. Authorities are investigating to determine why the landing gear was not deployed. 


Thankfully nobody onboard the airplane was hurt. All too often, aviation accidents can result in serious personal injury. If you have been injured in a Waukesha Aviation Accident, please contact the Waukesha Personal Injury Lawyers Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, by calling 800-242-2874 today.
