JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A man taking advantage of Friday's nice weather had a bit of a scare in the skies over Jackson.
He was flying his Beechcraft "Bonanza" airplane when a warning light came on in the cockpit. Bonnie Wilson of the Jackson Municipal Airport Authority says the pilot alerted the control tower, which called the Jackson Fire Department as a precaution.
Firefighters met the plane, which landed safely.
Wilson says the aircraft is housed at Hawkins and is being checked out for any problems.
