Small Plane Makes Crash Landing In Amarillo
If you were in the Southwest part of Amarillo, you probably noticed a lot of excitement yesterday.
A small plane had to make an emergency crash landing in a field off 6th Avenue and Tradewind Blvd on Thursday around 3 p.m. According to the Randall Country Sheriff's Office, there were three people on board the small aircraft, which was a Piper PA-28-140. None of the passengers were injured in the crash.
Witnesses near the scene said there was damage to one of the wings of the aircraft but the overall landing seemed to be skilled.
According to RCSO, the pilot of the plane was attempting to take off but could not gain enough altitude, along will several miscalculations. The plane slid several hundred feet before the nose gave way.
First responding Texas State Troopers, fire fighters, and EMTs all agree the most important thing is no one got hurt in this accident.
