ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A two-seater aircraft crashed during landing at the Double Eagle Airport Tuesday morning, according to a spokesman for Albuquerque Fire Rescue.

Tom Ruiz said around 7:45 a.m. the aircraft, which he described as self-weighted and similar to a glider but with a motor, was landing at the airport when a wheel malfunctioned and it wobbled and tilted to the side. He said a student recertifying his license was flying the aircraft at the time.

“Both the pilot and passenger were able to self extricate prior to AFR arrival without incident,” Ruiz wrote in an email. “The pilot stated that while he was landing the aircraft, there was a landing gear malfunction causing the plane to collapse to the side, sliding to a stop. The pilot was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.”

He said eight fire trucks and two ambulances were sent to the scene. No fuel or hazmat materials were spilled during the crash.
