Elkhart Municipal Airport (KEKM), Indiana

Plane lands safely in Elkhart after landing gear concerns

A small aircraft made it safely to the ground in Elkhart after concerns that its landing gear was not working properly.

The Elkhart Police Department and several fire departments responded to the Elkhart Municipal Airport around 5 p.m.

The pilot contacted the control tower saying his landing gear would not deploy.

It took five passes, and about an hour, before air traffic controllers were able to confirm that the landing gear had come out and locked.

The pilot and his four passengers were not hurt.

Airport employees checked the runway for any parts that could have fallen off the Challenger aircraft, but none were found.
