Six people are safe after a plane crashed at Addison Municipal Airport.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the left main landing gear of a Cessna 421 collapsed while the plane was landing in Addison around 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.

After the brakes locked up, the went into a ditch at the airport, the FAA said.

The five passengers and the pilot were not injured.

The FAA said the incident is still under investigation.


  1. Why is the prop on the left engine feathered. Was he that quick when the gear “collapsed”?

  2. This is the 3rd time in 4 months this has happened at this airport. This place is crazy dangerous

    1. 3 incidents in 4 months... crazy dangerous.... Have you driven down the highway lately? If you know something that could alleviate the "danger" perhaps you should contact the FAA and the NTSB.

    2. Normally I'd say this is hysteria, but if you look up "Addison plane crash" on youtube, you'll find a lot of scary videos, so maybe you are on to something.
