RIDGELAND, S.C. (WSAV) – A jet landing at the Ridgeland-Claude Dean Airport ended up in the marsh Wednesday morning.
Officials say a Gulfstream G150 suffered a brake malfunction as it was landing around 10:30 a.m. and overshot the runway into a swampy area.
There were five people aboard the twin-engine jet, including two pilots and three passengers. No one was injured.
The Federal Aviation Administration will investigate.
The Ridgeland Airport is a public-use airport serving Jasper County. Last year, a new 4,200-foot runway opened up at the airport to accommodate some larger planes.
