JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)- Emergency crews were called out to the Jonesboro Municipal Airport Friday night to help Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel land the plane he was piloting.
A representative from McDaniel's office tells Region 8 News the Beechcraft Baron 55 he was flying showed a malfunctioning landing gear indicator light. McDaniel contacted authorities from the air.
Emergency crews waited on the ground as the attorney general did a low level pass to see if the landing gear was down or not. The indicator light was the only malfunction and McDaniel landed the plane without incident.
According to Jonesboro E-911 Director Jeff Presley, Jonesboro Fire and Police Departments along with the rescue squad and an ambulance responded to the incident.
