Plane Makes Emergency Landing in Osceola County Field


A small plane was forced to make an emergency landing Saturday evening in a field east of Reed City.

The sheriff’s department says two people were flying from Greenville to Traverse City.

They say engine problems forced them to make an emergency landing on a field in Hersey Township near the intersection of 175th Ave. and US-10.

Deputies say the pilot, Benjamin Lapage of Marshall, and the passenger, Eric Nuffer of Traverse City were not hurt.

The plane did receive minor damage from the landing.

The sheriff’s office says they are assisting the Federal Aviation Administration with the investigation on the incident.
