Country singer Jerry Jeff Walker had plane trouble coming into Dallas’ Love Field over the weekend. Walker, Danny Britt, his road manager, two members of his band and a pilot were aboard Walker’s Piper Navajo when fire broke out in one of the plane’s two engines as it was coming into Dallas, where Walker was scheduled to perform at the Longhorn Ballroom. “We lost the engine as we were landing,” Britt said. “We landed under one engine, and as we hit the ground we noticed the fire.” Everyone got off the plane without incident and the fire was quickly put out with fire extinguishers. Britt said Walker and the band would use a commercial airline for the return trip to Austin.
