LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – No one was injured after the brakes reportedly failed on a small aircraft landing overnight at Clinton National Airport.
The incident happened at 11:56 p.m. Monday.
Greg Hatcher of Little Rock, the pilot of the Cessna Citation CJ4, said that the brakes did not function properly, which caused him to turn the aircraft to a grassy area at the end of the runway in order to stop it.
The pilot and one passenger were onboard. The plane landed on Runway 18/36, which is on the west side of the airfield for general aviation use.
The aircraft, which was arriving from Las Vegas, is registered to Charter Express. On Tuesday morning, the Federal Aviation Administration plans to investigate for any damage to the plane.
Both Runways 18/36 and 4L-22R, the airport’s main commercial runway, remained open following the incident.
