Plane Makes Emergency Landing at Merced Regional Airport

FRESNO, Calif. Authorities say the pilot did not have confirmation on whether his landing gear would work as he approached the runway at Merced Regional Airport. He was also worried the plane was leaking fuel.

Police, firefighters, and paramedics rushed to the runway to prepare for an emergency landing. But the plane managed to touch down safely with its landing gear down.

Authorities are now looking into what may have caused the initial problems with the indicators in the cockpit.

But again, the plane has landed safely at Merced Regional Airport.
