ABILENE, Texas — A small private plane made an emergency landing on Tuesday afternoon at Abilene Regional Airport.

According to Don Green, Director of Transportation Services, the pilot of the aircraft notified the air traffic control tower at about 4:45 p.m. that the instrument panel on the aircraft went out and as a result of that, the pilot could not get the plane's landing gear to come down.

The landing gear eventually came down and the plane landed safely.

The Abilene Fire Department had crews on standby just in case the plane were to crash.

Green did not know where the plane was coming from or how many people were on board the aircraft.

The plane is a Piper PA-32R-301T Turbo Saratoga and owned by a company in Lakeway, near Austin.
