Small plane’s landing gear collapses while coming into John Wayne Airport

A light plane on Wednesday, Nov. 11, experienced technical issues while coming down at John Wayne Airport in Orange County and skidded across a runway, but no injuries were reported.

The twin-engine Comanche’s pilot reported trouble with the plane’s fixed landing equipment to air traffic controllers while approaching the airport at about 4 p.m., JWA spokeswoman Deanne Thompson said. Its left main landing gear collapsed as it made contact with the runway.

The two people aboard the plane were not injured, Thompson said.

The runway it came down on is designated for light aircraft, and was closed until an Orange County Fire Authority crew moved the plane out of the way at about 6 p.m. However, planes were able to use other runways, and flight schedules were not affected by the closure.
