Firefighters talk with a man after the pilot of a Beechcraft Bonanza plane with engine problem made a crash landing in a field near the Greeley-Weld County Airport.
GREELEY, Colo. -
The pilot of a small airplane having engine problems safely crash-landed Wednesday afternoon in a field east of Greeley-Weld County Airport.
The single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza landed in the farm field just before 2:30 p.m, a 1/2-mile east of the airport, said Greeley Fire Division Chief Dale Lyman.
Arriving fire crews found the uninjured pilot standing outside of the plane.
"The pilot reported that the aircraft's engine had been worked on recently and shortly after takeoff he began experiencing problems, forcing him to land in a freshly plowed field," Lyman said.
Despite the crash landing, the plane did not spill any fuel or catch on fire, Lyman said.
The landing bent the planes' propeller.
