Today a private plane landed at Friedrichshafen Airport at around 14:30 p.m., but the pilot could no longer leave the runway independently. The cause is not yet known. All those involved were unharmed.

The alarm was therefore triggered at the airport and the fire brigade called. Lake Constance Airport was closed for further approaches and the aircraft was recovered by the fire brigade. Accordingly, the airport had to be closed for around an hour. The Mooney 252 machine had started on a sightseeing flight in Friedrichshafen. In addition to the pilot, there were also two passengers on board.

From the point of view of the airport manager, Mr. Claus-Dieter Wehr, the emergency services have done a very good job. “We are very happy that nothing happened to the pilot concerned and his passengers. The runway was only blocked for about an hour. After that, regular flight operations could be carried out again ”. According to reports, the right landing gear broke when the machine touched down.
