SAN DIEGO — The pilot of a small airplane made a safe emergency landing Monday at Montgomery Field Airport, authorities reported.
The man was practicing touch-and-gos at the municipal airport when one of the landing-gear assemblies on the Piper PA28 Cherokee became damaged about 2:45 p.m., according to the Federal Aviation Administration.
He then circled the area in a holding pattern while firefighters were dispatched to the scene, just in case emergency assistance was required for the landing.
Shortly before 3:30 p.m., the captain landed his plane safely, FAA Allen Kenitzer said.
No injuries were reported.
