LOGAN, Utah — A Utah pilot walked away without injury after he forced to make an emergency landing in a field southeast of Trenton.
The Herald Journal reports John Kerr landed his amateur-built Kitfox Classic IV just before 5 p.m. Friday after the aircraft experienced engine failure while flying at about 1,000 feet.
Kerr tells the newspaper he maneuvered past a ditch, a fire hydrant and avoided a set of power lines by flying between them and the ground before touching down.
Kerr is chairman of the Logan-Cache Airport Authority Board and has about 1,200 hours of flight time.
The aircraft was transported back to a hangar at the airport Friday night.
