SHERIDAN — Sheridan’s emergency responders were called to the airport Sunday morning after a plane went off the runway due to a faulty landing gear.
The response from emergency workers was robust, but the incident yielded minimal damage to the aircraft and no injuries.
Goose Valley Volunteer Fire Department Chief Bob Williams said his crews arrived to find the aircraft had lost a wheel, but that the pilot was unharmed.
Sheridan Fire-Rescue firefighter John Syring confirmed his team was also called out to provide automatic aid, but upon arrival, the situation was “very minor,” and the firefighters returned to the station within minutes.
The airport’s Crash Fire-Rescue team, Rocky Mountain Ambulance and the Sheridan County Sheriff’s Office also provided support to the pilot, whose name was not immediately available this morning.
