Plane Makes Emergency Landing in San Jose When Landing Gear Collapses: FAA

A small plane made an emergency landing at Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport on Thursday afternoon with four people on board who were able to walk away unharmed, airport officials said.

No one was injured when the landing gear collapsed on the Piaggio P180, according Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kentizer. Vidoe at the scene showed the small white plane sitting atop a pile of foam, and fire fighters and other authorities surrounding it.

FAA records show the plane was registered to Monolithic Power Systems in San Jose. No one at the company immediately responded for comment.

Airport spokeswoman Vicky Day said the plane landed about noon on Runway 30.

Operations at the main airport were not affected.
