Kansas Pilot Makes Emergency Landing

KSAL StaffJuly 20, 2013

Authorities say a pilot made an emergency landing of a small plane in southern Nebraska.

The Phelps County Sheriff’s Office says the Piper Turbo Arrow landed Friday afternoon on a dirt road north of the town of Holdrege. No injuries were reported.

Pilot Mark Budde of Leoti, Kansas told authorities he took off from the Holdrege airport at noon. He says the plane lost power shortly after take-off, and he determined he didn’t have enough power to return to the airport.

Budde landed on a dirt road. The plane’s right wing caught nearby corn, spinning it into a field.

Damage was reported on the plane, some corn and an irrigation pipe.
