AIRCRAFT LANDED WITH PARTIAL GEAR RETRACTED, ORLANDO, FLORIDA.




ORLANDO, Fla. —   A pilot safely landed a single-engine plane at Orlando Executive Airport Saturday afternoon despite being unable to lower the aircraft's landing gear, the Orlando Fire Department said.

The pilot, who reported having 30 minutes’ worth of fuel left, circled the airport.

The plane landed at about 2:45 p.m., firefighters said.

Firefighters staged at the airport as a precaution.

Only one person was aboard the plane, officials said.

No injuries were reported.

Good pilot, good landing. Lucky there wasn't a strong crosswind. Prop and engine likely won't need teardown. That plane will fly again, AVEMCO willing.
