PHOENIX -- Scottsdale City Councilman Robert “Bob” Littlefield was on board a small plane that slid off a runway Monday morning.
Littlefield, who is a flight instructor, was flying with the plane's new owner, helping him get familiar with it. They were on their fifth touch-and-go maneuver when they came in hard and were unable to get enough power to pull up. The plane slid off the runway.
The councilman called in Tuesday morning to tell Javier Soto and Kaley O'Kelley exactly what happened in the moments before the plane skidded off the runway.
