ASHWAUBENON, WI (WTAQ) - A pilot from Arizona had to make an emergency landing at Austin Straubel International Airport Sunday.
It happened around 11 p.m. Saturday.
Officials say the 77-year-old pilot initially tried to land at the Outagamie County Regional Airport in Greenville, but had problems with the plane's landing gear.
While he was burning off fuel, he headed to Austin Straubel. Still with no landing gear, the plane skidded down the runway several hundred feet.
Austin Straubel Airport Director Tom Miller says he's happy with how things turned out, considering the circumstances.
"No injuries, no fuel spill. You couldn't have a better emergency landing, I suppose," Tom Miller told FOX 11.
The pilot and his passenger are from Arizona. They were coming to the area for the summer.
