Crisis averted at airport



EMERGENCY services rushed to the Port Macquarie airport this morning following reports of an attempted emergency landing.

A dual marine/tarmac plane was forced down on the main runway due to low fuel.

Complications arose from one of the plane's landing gears failing to engage.

The two pilots on board managed to land the stricken plane safely with minimal damage to the plane and just a minor hydrolic oil spill on the runway.
