C172 Makes Emergency Landing At Opa Locka

Wed Sep 20, 2006 5:53 am

A C172RG just made an emergency landing at Opa Locka, Florida. It was live on CNN. They said the plane had made a hard landing previously and the right main gear became bent, which could be seen from the live feed. When it touched down, the right main bent back to the nearly retracted position and the plane stopped quickly. Both occupants got out safely. Aircraft was N4634V.

They had John King on, an actual aviation expert. It's not on anymore, it was only shown live for about 10-15 minutes and I caught the last 5 minutes.
