May 22, 2008Albany -- A twin engine plane made an emergency landing in Albany this morning.
The oil pressure dropped in the twin-engine Beachcraft Baron.
The pilot, John Godbehere of Cairo, shut down one engine and landed at the airport in Albany. When he landed, an oil leak was discovered, and the plane was towed in for maintenance.
"Anytime a pilot sees a drop in oil pressure, that is a definite danger signal. You can't go very far with no oil in your engine," says Airport Director Evette Aihle.
Two people were aboard the plane. No one was injured.
