Robinson's Plane Makes an Emergency Landing

From Associated Press

Former NBA star David Robinson's flight to Ohio made an emergency landing Tuesday at Texarkana Regional Airport after the pilot reported smoke in the cockpit.

Robinson, his manager and a flight crew of three were not injured, airport manager Steve Luebbert said. Robinson was on his way to Cincinnati for a speaking engagement.

The new twin-engine Gulfstream IV is owned by Toyota. Texarkana Police Department spokesman Bart Veal said within 15 minutes of landing, airport workers found a floor panel that apparently was singed by overheated wiring underneath. The cause was unclear.
