Salinger - Salinger Documentary Staff In Crash Landing

A plane carrying staff associated with a new documentary about writer J.D. Salinger made a crash landing in Colorado on Sunday (01Sep13).

Author David Shields, who co-wrote new book Salinger with director Shane Salerno, and The Weinstein Co. publicity executive Emmy Chang were among the passengers left shaken up after the air scare.

The incident happened after the landing gear of the small craft collapsed as it approached Telluride Regional Airport and the plane skidded to a halt on the runway.

There were no injuries to the 10 passengers on board or the two crew members, but all outgoing flights were postponed or cancelled as officials investigated the accident, according to TheWrap.com.

Salinger is being screened at the Telluride Film Festival this weekend (29Aug13-02Sep13).

The documentary, backed by The Weinstein Co., is due out later this month (Sep13) in conjunction with Salerno and Shields' book about The Catcher in the Rye writer.
