Cessna Plane Makes Emergency Landing at Salisbury Airport

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md.- A Cessna 182 single-engine plane had to make an emergency landing at the Salisbury-Ocean City-Wicomico Regional Airport at around 2 p.m. Friday, according to Airport Manager Bob Bryant.

"There was one occupant, flying a single-engine Cessna 182 that was not certified to be flying into icing conditions because there was no de-icing equipment on the airplane, who was forced to make an emergency landing," Bryant said.

Bryant said that while the propeller never stopped turning, when the small plane finally landed there was a quarter-inch of ice on the wings and across the windshield, which obstructed the pilot's view.

"He managed to land without incident," Bryant said. "The ice meant he was picking up a lot of unexpected extra weight and he simply needed to land quickly, and we were the closest."

Though Bryant was unsure where the plane was heading, it departed Hagerstown and was not initially supposed to land at the Salisbury airstrip. Several rescue personnel were awaiting the pilot's landing as a precaution.

No injuries were reported.
