COBB COUNTY, Ga. - An aircraft crashed at Cobb County International Airport-McCollum Field after the plane's front wheel came off, according to FAA officials.

The FK9 Mark IV aircraft had to be towed to the ramp after the Thursday morning incident. Two people were in the aircraft.

Mike Buffa and Tony Buffa are brothers, and say they were the first in their family's history to survive a plane crash.

No one was injured in what Karl Von Hagel, airport manager, called a “non-event” Thursday.

He confirmed what the Federal Aviation Administration had said about a plane’s front wheel falling off as it was landing at McCollum Field.

Von Hagel said the plane was towed away for repairs.

The front wheel of an aircraft fell off while landing at a Cobb County airport Thursday morning, according to a Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman.

Kathleen Bergen said the FK9 Mark IV was towed away from McCollum Field, and the incident will be investigated.

Bergen didn’t know whether there were injuries, saying that information would have to come from officials at the airport, none of whom were immediately available Thursday evening.

According to FAA records, the plane is registered to Hansen Air Group, an aircraft rental and training service based at McCollum. Calls to the company were not immediately returned.
