Textbook Landing For Troubled Aircraft Into NCIA

NCIA Facebook

A twin engine airplane with an apparent engine on fire landed safely at Natrona County International Airport Tuesday morning. The craft was carrying 7 people en-route from South Dakota to Grand Junction.

Airport Chief of Public Safety, Mike Hendershot, says it was around 10:30 and the craft was about 35 miles from Casper when the pilot contacted air traffic control. Hendershot says the pilot shut down the troubled engine and brought the plane in.

“The pilot said that you study this for hours in a simulator and never think your gonna have to do it. He said it was pretty much text book the way he handled it and the aircraft came in and landed perfectly.”

Hendershot says the pilot and his passengers were all grateful to get their feet back on the ground.
