Single engine plane makes emergency landing at Pitt-Greenville Airport

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - An airplane made an emergency landing at the Pitt-Greenville Airport around noon Saturday.

The single engine Cessna 177 flying from Brunswick, Georgia to Edenton, North Carolina landed on runway 20, which is currently closed for repairs.

There was no damage to the plane and the one person inside the plane was not injured, Pitt Greenville Airport Director Betty Stansbury said.

The equipment and construction crews working on the runway were also not damaged or harmed during the emergency landing, Stansbury said.

The plane was able to depart around 3 p.m. Saturday.

Both runways at PGV have been closed as crews work to pave the intersection between the two runways. The short runway is expected to reopen Monday morning and the long runway is expected to reopen by Friday afternoon, Stansbury said.
