Locked brakes on airplane result in emergency landing at Hayward Executive Airport


HAYWARD (KRON) — Crews responded to an airplane that made an emergency landing at the Hayward Executive Airport Monday afternoon, according to the Hayward fire department.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, A Swearingen SA227 veered off of runway 28 at 1:00 p.m.

Hayward fire crews said, the plane had to make the abrupt landing due to the brakes on the plane locking up.

The plane landed on grass area near the runway. Airport officials had to tow the plane off the grass because the brakes were extremely hot, and they were concerned that a fire would erupt.

The FAA has announced that they will be investigating the cause of the landing.
