PANAMA CITY, Florida (WJHG/WECP) - A single passenger plane was forced to make an emergency landing at Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport.

Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport Executive Director Parker McClellan was notified that a Beech 65-A90 King Air reported an emergency while in flight and notified the ECP control tower Sunday afternoon. Upon landing, the aircraft’s nose gear collapsed.

“There was one passenger aboard the plane. The passenger experienced no injuries and the emergency teams along with other crews were able to get the plane off the runway within an hour. Our fire department, our police department, and our maintenance folks at the airport train for this. It’s an event that doesn’t happen every day, but we train for it every day, said, McClellan.
