As if California’s budget and drought problems weren’t enough to deal with this week, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s jet had to make an emergency landing on Friday.
His office confirmed a message the governor sent Friday on Twitter.
“A little adventure just now when my plane made an emergency landing. All’s ok, though,” he wrote. The post also included a photo of the plan with emergency vehicles surrounding it.
His office said the governor’s jet made a “quick, steep, but safe” landing, according to Schwarzenegger’s spokesman, Aaron McLear, the Associated Press reported.
The plane was 10 minutes away from landing Friday in Santa Monica, California when the pilot of the plane reported smoke coming from an instrument panel, McLear said. There were no injuries.
Investigators are looking into the matter with private charter company NetJets, Inc, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor told AP.
