Emergency Landing in Sevier County

Sevierville (WVLT) - No one was hurt after a small plane had to make an emergency landing in Sevierville Monday night.

Sevierville authorities tell us shortly after eight this evening, a 2000 Socata Trinidad landed at the Gatlinburg/Sevierville airport when the plane's nose gear collapsed.

Two people on board were not hurt, but the front end of the plane including the propeller was damaged.

The FAA tells us the plane was registered to Carolina Flight Transfer, and it was on its way to Pigeon Forge from Jacksonville, Florida.
