Zero-G Corporation’s G-FORCE ONE 727 made an emergency landing on Thursday at Vero Beach Regional Aircraft in Florida after the pilots reported engine trouble.
The crew reported a possible engine fire. There were three people on board the aircraft when it landed safely.
Zero G, which is owned by Virgina-based Space Adventures, uses the aircraft to fly weightless parabolic arcs.
The aircraft recently returned to service after a nearly 18-month stand down. The aircraft’s original engines were repossessed by the company that leased them. The 727 also had to go through FAA certification due to changes made in the aircraft.
