OGDEN, Utah (KUTV) — A pilot landed his aircraft in a field around five miles from the Ogden-Hinckley Airport after experiencing engine trouble, according to the Weber County Sheriff’s Office.
“He did indicate that he had some type of engine problem,” said Lieutenant Mark Horton. “He was able to contact the Ogden tower and advise of his situation and give a pretty good location of where he was gonna be.”
The pilot made an emergency landing in the Ogden Bay Waterfowl Management Area, coming to a stop next to a dirt road just west of the Weber River.
First responders found the plane, and the uninjured pilot, with the help of a drone.
