Emergency services swung into action this afternoon after a plane suffered a fault close to York.
Fire crews from Acomb, Selby and Tadcaster were mobilised after a report of an aircraft in distress.
The call came in at 4.27pm today (Thursday).
A plane radioed to say it had a warning light indicating its landing gear was faulty and could not be deployed.
The firefighters headed to Leeds East Airport, at Church Fenton south of York, ready for an emergency landing.
The four-seater Seneca aircraft had two people on board. Initially the undercarriage wouldn’t deploy.
After circling over the airport, the wheels came down, but then one of the engines failed.
A North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service spokesperson said: “Luckily, the crew had practised one engine landings earlier that day and with some skill were able to land safely.”
Fire crews checked over the aircraft with a thermal camera.
