DENVER – A small plane with landing gear issues successfully made an emergency landing at Denver International Airport Wednesday afternoon.
The three people onboard did not sustain any injuries.
The Hawker HS25B left Centennial Airport at 11 a.m. Shortly after takeoff, a tire blew and damaged the hydraulic system.
The aircraft started circling DIA’s airspace. The airport prepared for a possible gear-up landing.
The plane landed around 3:15 p.m. Emergency crews could be seen surrounding the aircraft, spraying foam on it as a precaution..
DIA worked closely with Denver Fire, Denver Health, Denver Police and the FAA to prepare for this landing.
The plane is registered to the Monforts, owners of the Colorado Rockies. However, a spokesperson for the team said the Monforts were not onboard.
