Airport Emergency Call

Timmins firefighters responded to an emergency call at the Timmins Victor Power Airport this morning when a pilot radioed in that he didn't think the landing gear on his aircraft was funtioning properly. As the plane, a 1982 twin-engine Piper Chieftan registered to Commercial Aviation, approached the airport, the pilot did a low flyover (top photo) so the landing gear could be inspected. Once it was apparent that the landing gear was down, the pilot made a safe landing(bottom photo) on Runway-03.
