Emergency Landing at Erie International

Posted: Updated:


There were some tense moments, Friday night, at the Erie International Airport, as first responders waited by the runway, for an emergency landing.

Reports first came in around 8 PM, for a failing hydraulic system of a plane flying nearby.

Several crews, including the West Ridge Fire Department, were called to the scene, preparing for a possible crash landing.

Around 40 people and 2,000 lbs. of fuel were on board. Luckily, the plane made it to the runway safely, and all passengers are okay.

Part of Asbury Road and Powell Avenue were closed for a time as a precaution.
