Robinson's Plane Makes an Emergency Landing

November 12, 2003|From Associated Press

TEXARKANA, Ark. — Former NBA star David Robinson's flight to Ohio made an emergency landing Tuesday at Texarkana Regional Airport after the pilot reported smoke in the cockpit.

Robinson, his manager and a flight crew of three were not injured, airport manager Steve Luebbert said. Robinson was on his way to Cincinnati for a speaking engagement.

The new twin-engine Gulfstream IV is owned by Toyota. Texarkana Police Department spokesman Bart Veal said within 15 minutes of landing, airport workers found a floor panel that apparently was singed by overheated wiring underneath. The cause was unclear.
