Governor's plane makes emergency landing in Van Nuys

9:22 PM | June 19, 2009

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.”

Does Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s own the private jet? I thought that it was owned by some lobbyit.

Well done Governor. You keep it cool.

I hope Gov Schwarzenegger realizes that he should stop flying in and out of Santa Monica Airport. A jet like his could easily take out the homes that sit at the end of the runway there. Van Nuys is a more approrpriate airport for his aircraft.

He's not running because at the moment, he knows he wouldn't win, given all the self-inflicted damage he's done by way of empty public promises and dubious private choices.
