Small Plane Lands in St.Cloud on Jammed Gear

A single-engine airplane landed safely at the St. Cloud Regional Airport Saturday even though it had a jammed landing gear, Associated Press said.

The pilot was coming from northern Minnesota as part of a training exercise when he had to make the emergency landing, Steven Anderson, a local pilot who was at the scene, told the SC Times.

Associated Press said there were two fire engines, seven firefighters, St. Cloud police officers and ambulance crews there for the landing.

The pilot circled the landing strip about an hour as airport workers and authorities came up with a plan for a safe landing, SC Times said.
