The pilot of a small aircraft is uninjured after making an emergency landing in a field near Cheney Lake on Wednesday evening.
It took emergency workers more than an hour to find the plane, a Cessna 182T fixed wing single engine model. The plane, manufactured in 2011, is categorized as "experimental."
"We are aware of the reports regarding the Cessna 182 and can confirm Cessna personnel are on site," Cessna Communications said in a statement. "We can also confirm the aircraft had a single occupant. The pilot has not reported any injuries. We will continue working closely with local and Federal authorities as information develops. Obviously our primary concern is for the crew member involved."
The Federal Aviation Administration also released a statement, saying the incident would be investigated.
After the pilot landed the plane, it was thought he landed near Conway Springs. When authorities couldn't find him, they discovered he actually landed a half mile north of the Reno/Kingman County line west of Cheney Lake.
The pilot had engine problems, prompting the emergency landing.
