A small plane made an emergency landing at Daytona Beach International Airport shortly after 6 p.m. Thursday, March 30, after the plane’s landing gear failed to fully extend.
The pilot circled above the airport for about an hour and a half burning off fuel before landing on its belly without incident. The twin-engine Piper Aztec, registered to Ace Tomato Company based in Daytona Beach, had two people on board, both of whom exited the plane unharmed.
Commercial operations were uninterrupted.
