Emergency crews responded to the Monroe County Airport when a pilot called needing to make an emergency landing Sunday afternoon.
The airport’s director, Tom McCosh, said the plane’s pilot was able to make it safely to the ground after having technical issues with the plane’s nose gear.
The pilot called the airport before landing to let them know he was having technical issues. Emergency crews and rescue were called to the scene. Among them was county mayor, Tim Yates, Sheriff Tommy Jones, and Director of development, Bryan Hall.
The pilot was able to make it to the ground safely in an emergency landing after being coached by the airport’s command central, Bob Mundle.
In response to the large amount of help at the scene, McCosh said, “I can truly say that our county cares.”
