Pilot makes emergency landing Monday in Oklahoma City
A pilot made an emergency landing when the engine stalled in northwest Oklahoma City en route to Wiley Post Airport, firefighters reported.
No one aboard the single-propeller airplane was injured about 2:50 p.m. as the pilot landed safely at Wiley Post Airport, 8400 Silver Crossing. The pilot thought he ran out of fuel, but the problem could have been a mechanical failure, said fire Capt. David Macy.
The pilot landed just south of the runway, Macy said. Police are keeping motorists out of the area.
