A pilot flying over Sugar Grove made an emergency, two-wheeled landing at the Aurora Airport this week after the left main landing gear on the plane failed to extend.

Video provided shows him land the plane smoothly, eventually coming to a stop with the plane’s left wing touching the ground.

According to radio traffic, Luman circled the airport until emergency crews were able to arrive at the airport as a precaution.

This from Christopher Holmes:

I recently learned that Sugar Grove got rid of their aerial ladder and are selling it.
fire truck for sale

This aerial is being surplused because anticipated commercial retail development in the first due area did not occur after the economic downturn. The aerial ladder firetruck is being replaced with a fire rescue pumper that will better meet the needs of the community. The aerial ladder is in immaculate shape and has very low miles.
Here is an abbreviated excerpt from the meeting minutes pertaining to the sale of surplus fire apparatus:

Tri-Com’s new fire dispatch freq

This from Chris Ranck from CARMA:

“Tri-Com South” 154.7925 D174 is the new official name of the former Sugar Grove channel.

Tri-Com South is being simulcast over 151.4075 D654, the former North Aurora repeater. This simulcast currently has some technical bugs on the dispatcher side consisting of repeating audio and the clipping off of the tail end of words.

Tri-Com is now dispatching both Sugar Grove and North Aurora over the repeater that Sugar Grove used to be on by themselves. 154.7925 D174
That channel is included on in both the Kane/NWDuPage/NWCook Feed and the DeKalb Tower Feed where it is now named “NAurora/SugarGrv”

154.7925R/159.3300 [D174] is the current Sugar Grove FPD local channel
151.4075R/154.7100 [D654] is the current North Aurora FPD dispatch channel.
