Pilots manually lower gear for Nebraska landing

NORTH PLATTE — A plane carrying 17 passengers from Denver to North Platte set down safely after some tense moments caused by trouble with the plane’s landing gear.

North Platte television station KNOP reports that Great Lakes Flight 7252 couldn’t land on its first approach Sunday afternoon because its landing gear wouldn’t deploy.

The Beechcraft 1900 circled the airfield while the pilots manually lowered the gear.

Passenger Mallorie Hernandez, of Lexington, says the pilots told passengers to remain calm and brace themselves.

The plane then landed about 3 p.m. without further incident as fire and medical crews waited.
