Emergency Landing


A man on his way to Etowah from Chattanooga, Tenn., made an emergency landing in Mac Owen's field along N.C. 215 Friday afternoon. When he switched gas tanks, the fuel stopped feeding the engine and he glided to the open pasture. After local residents gave him gas for the working tank, he taxied to N.C. 215 and took off. The local fire department and a state trooper responded to the 911 calls and blocked traffic for his takeoff. Although his wing clipped some trees, he arrived safely at his destination.
