There was a close call for a couple celebrating their wedding anniversary on Monday.

About 6:30 a.m., the private plane they were piloting reported landing gear problems while touching down at Lanai airport.

That caused them to skid on the runway about 1,900 feet coming to rest very close to the airport terminal.

The couple did not have any injuries but the runway was closed for four hours until the aircraft could be removed safely.
