Emergency Responders from the City of Liberal and Seward County were called to Liberal’s Municipal Airport Sunday evening as a Great Lakes Aviation airplane radioed in with the possibility of landing gear trouble. The pilots, on approach to making a landing, indicated to ground crews, that the planes instrumentation indicated the landing gear on the aicraft was not down. Emergency crews were called in and were on stand-by as the plane completed a flyby so a visual could be made on the aircraft. Flight crew members on the ground indicated to the pilot and co-pilot that indeed the landing gear had come down and a landing was safely made. It proved to be a tense moment for those aboard the plane, family members awaiting their loved ones arrival, and airport and airline staff.
