Piper PA-23-250, C-GLZR, The Airborne Sensing Corporation: Incident occurred November 24, 2017 at Cherry Capital Airport (KTVC), Traverse City, Grand Traverse County, Michigan

The Airborne Sensing Corporation:

GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- A Canadian pilot is safe after making an emergency landing at Cherry Capital Airport on Friday evening.

The pilot was flying commercially from Ontario to Green Bay on business when he felt something was wrong.

A panel underneath the plane became loose because of the strong winds, causing the aircraft to drag.

The pilot passed by the airport's tower twice before getting approved to land.

The Cherry Capital Airport operations team and the airport's firetruck responded to the scene.

The pilot is not allowed to leave airport property because he is from Canada and is working with customs to get approval to fly again.
