Fresno Fire Department engines were called to Fresno Yosemite International Airport for a plane experiencing “flight control malfunctions,” firefighters said Thursday.

The crews were on hand as a safety precaution but the plane landed safely about 11:15 a.m., department spokesperson Jonathan Lopez said.

The American Airlines plane was coming in from Dallas, according to airport public information officer Vikkie Calderon.

“There was no impact to our other aircraft operations,” she said.

It was the second reported emergency landing at the Fresno Airport in 10 days. On April 18, a commercial passenger airplane made emergency landing due to a cracked windshield.

That landing was also safe.
