Palestine pilot has scary moment after malfunction

Posted: Updated:

PALESTINE (KYTX) - A Palestine pilot and one of his friends are safe after a scary flight yesterday.

Jim Wells says he was on a joy-ride in his Cessna when he realized his left landing gear was stuck.

The plane can't balance on landing without it.

Wells tried to shake it loose but he had to come in with a wheel missing.

He skidded off the runway but no one was hurt.
