Deer to Blame in a Rough Plane Landing

Posted: Updated:

A strange sight at a Northern Michigan airport. A plane sitting in the middle of a field after a rough landing... And a deer is to blame.

This time of year hunters are happy to target a buck, but that wasn't the case for a pilot who hit one last night.

It was a rough landing at the Onaway Airport in Presque Isle County as he tried to dodge a deer on the runway.

9 and 10's Alyssa Gambla and photojournalist Erin Malone visited the scene to find out more.
