Plane spins on runway while landing at Santa Fe airport

August 8, 2019

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say the Santa Fe Regional Airport was closed for up to two hours Thursday after a small plane spun on a runway while landing.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford said two people were aboard the single-engine plane and that nobody was injured.

Lunsford said the plane spun when the pilot “lost directional control while landing.”

Airport Operations Manager John Dickinson said the plane “was a little banged up” and that closure curtailed flights for over 90 minutes.

Dickinson said he didn’t have details on the affected flight operations.
