Plane makes emergency landing in Mount Pleasant
Pilot not injured after releasing group of skydivers
MOUNT PLEASANT, Wis. — A small plane had to make an emergency landing in a bean field in southeastern Wisconsin after releasing a group of skydivers.
WDJT-TV reported the 41-year-old pilot of the twin-engine plane was not injured after the landing at about 9:30 a.m. Saturday. There was no damage to the plane.
According to the Mount Pleasant police, the pilot was forced to land because it ran out of fuel or there was a malfunction with the fuel system.
He tried to land at the sky diving business on the west side of I-94 in Racine County, but ended up landing on the east side.
The FAA is expected to investigate.
