Experienced pilot lands plane safely after alarm system malfunction
from The News Tribune
A Tacoma, Washington, pilot had a bit of a scare as he prepared to land at the Tacoma Narrows Airport near Gig Harbor. As pilot John Carlin, 46, approached the airport around 4 p.m., his small single-engine aircraft's warning system went off, indicating his landing gear had not deployed. The experienced pilot, a former Navy flier for 11 years, communicated with the airport tower controllers, then spent nearly two hours circling the airport and burning off fuel as a safety precaution.
