Small plane makes emergency landing at North Perry Airport

Plane's landing gear collapses upon impact

PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. – A small plane made an emergency landing Friday afternoon at North Perry General Aviation Airport in Pembroke Pines.

Sky 10 was above the scene about 3:30 p.m. as fire-rescue units surrounded the plane.

Broward County Aviation Department spokesman Greg Meyer said the plane's landing gear collapsed upon impact with the runway.

"It made a noise and like a big scratch on the floor. It could have caught fire," Domingo Bello, who witnessed the landing, said.

The pilot and another person were on board at the time.

A Pembroke Pines Fire Department representative said no one was injured in the incident.

The plane was registered to Heart of Virginia Aviation in Ashland, Virginia.
