Governor's plane makes emergency landing in Van Nuys
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s private jet made an emergency landing at Van Nuys Airport tonight after the pilot reported smoke coming from the cockpit, according to a statement released by the governor’s press secretary.
The jet was about 10 minutes from Santa Monica Airport, its destination, when the pilot made a quick landing at 6:23 p.m. Although there wasn’t a visible fire, the Los Angeles Fire Department met the jet on the runway.
Upon landing, the governor disembarked and traveled home. No one was harmed in the incident.
Schwarzenegger posted a picture of the jet on his Twitter page and called the incident a “little adventure.”
