Scary moments for passengers aboard a Skywest flight from Omaha to Milwaukee late Tuesday afternoon.
The captain came over and said the landing gear wouldn’t come down and prepare for a crash landing.”
The pilot had to make an emergency landing after one of the three landing gears failed to lock into place. There were 36 passengers and three crew members on board and none were injured.
“When it hit the ground it skidded slightly. It veered to the left slightly because the wing hit.”
This passenger was very impressed with the calmness and the professionalism of the crew.
“The stewardess was fantastic. She was very calm and we just circled and waited.”
The plane’s wing scraped the runway as it slowed to stop.
