A small Beechcraft aircraft was forced to make an emergency landing at the Abbotsford Airport at about 6 p.m. today (Tuesday).
About 30 minutes before the landing, the aircraft with two people on board notified the airport that the plane’s landing gear was not coming down.
The 70-year-old-plane circled the airport twice before making a safe landing on a grassy area.
The aircraft landed on its belly, and the two occupants were not injured.
As a precautionary measure, BC Ambulance, the airport crash team, Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service and Abbotsford Police were on the scene.
