By Past Chief Charles Miedzinski (CP)
March 22, 2020

At approximately 1050 hours, Hollywood VFD Station 7 was dispatched to the St. Mary's County Airport for the Aircraft Emergency. Engine 72, Tanker 74, Rescue Squad 7, Chief 7, Chief 7A, and Chief 7B responded with 16 Volunteers. Chief 7A and Tanker 74 arrived on the scene to find an aircraft with a malfunctioning front landing gear circling the runway. Chief 7A established the St. Mary's Airport Command and had Tanker 74, Rescue Squad 7, and Foam 136 proceed to the scene while all others reported to the staging area. The aircraft landed with the front landing gear collapsing and the aircraft coming to a rest midway down the runway. Units proceeded to the aircraft to check for injuries and any hazards. With none found, the assignment was scaled back to units operating on the scene and all other units returned in-service. Units operating the incidnet remained on the scene for a short time before turning the incident over to the airport staff. Units from Hollywood VFD and NDW / NAS Pax River returned to service a short time later. Chief 7A (Doug Insley) held the St. Mary's Airport Command.
