Wayne Grady in airplane drama

Former U.S. PGA champion Wayne Grady made an emergency landing after the airplane he was flying experienced landing gear problems today.

One of the two passengers manually wound down the landing gear and the plane landed safely at Sunshine Coast airport. No one was injured.

Grady, of Australia, was flying the six-seat Beechcraft Bonanza from Southport on the Gold Coast to Rockhampton, about 360 miles north of Brisbane, to look at golf course real estate when he noticed a problem with the landing gear.

"If I had been on my own I would have had to put it in on its belly,'' Grady told Australian Broadcasting Corp. radio. "It's my plane. I don't know what happened. It's the first time these two boys have been up with me. I assume it will be the last time too."
