Small Plane Makes Emergency Landing At Mather Field

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Some frightening moments for several people onboard a small plane that had to make an emergency landing in Sacramento Friday morning.

The pilot of a plane with eight people on board declared an in-flight emergency saying his plane was ‘running rough’ and requested to make an emergency landing at Mather Field just after 11:00 a.m. Friday.

Fire fighters say the plane had to dump fuel before getting clearance to land.

After a few minutes, the pilot was able to land the plane safely.

No one was hurt.
