Incident occurred May 27, 2015 at Victoria Regional Airport (KVCT), Texas

A plane landed safely Wednesday at Victoria Regional Airport after the pilot reported problems with trying to deploy its landing gear.

The pilot reported the problem about 12:45 p.m. when the aircraft was experiencing electrical problems, said Victoria County Fire Marshal Ronald Pray.

An airport official declined to identify the airport tenant who owned the plane, but said it was not a Texas Sky commercial aircraft.

He said the crew aboard the aircraft hand-cranked the gear to deploy it and then flew by the airport so officials on the ground could determine the gear was deployed.

The aircraft then made a safe landing at 1:12 p.m., and no injuries were reported, Pray said.

The Victoria County Sheriff's Office, the Victoria Fire Department and the Department of Public Safety responded to the call.
