Pilot Walks Away After Emergency Landing

ROCKFORD (WIFR) – It’s been a scary afternoon for a local pilot who was forced to make an emergency landing in a wheat field.

We’re told this single engine plane suddenly lost power, but the pilot was able to navigate it down safely near the intersection of Kilburn and Porter. Multiple firefighters responded to the scene, but amazingly, he walked away without any serious injuries.
