Private plane makes safe emergency landing en route to Dallas


DALLAS– A small plane experiencing technical problems made an emergency landing on a road in a Dallas neighborhood on Saturday afternoon.

Engine problems forced the plane to land on West Kiest Boulevard around 3 p.m., WFAA-TV reported.

The unnamed husband and wife piloting the plane escaped injury and there were no injuries on the ground, Dallas Fire-Rescue officials said.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the multi-engine DA-622 landed about 2 miles from Dallas Executive Airport. The plane was en route to the airport from Winston Field in Snyder, Texas, about 402 kilometers west of Dallas, the WFAA reported.

There was no fire or fuel leak at the landing site, but some power lines were knocked down and a speed limit sign was hit, Dallas Fire-Rescue said.

Electric utility Oncor said only one customer lost service due to contact with power lines, WFAA reported.
