Small Plane Makes Emergency Landing In Millard Ballpark

 

It was a close call in Millard Wednesday afternoon. 

The pilot of a small plane made an emergency landing on a snow covered baseball field near 136th and Millard Avenue.

This follows an incident last Saturday in which engine trouble forced a small plane down in a field near 144th and Giles Road. There were no injuries in that case either.

The circumstances of the incident remain under investigation. Eppley Airport Authority noted there is substantial damage to the park fence owned by the city. The parks director says cost for repairing the fence will be looked into by their legal department.
