Single-Engine Plane Makes Emergency Landing in Apple Valley

APPLE VALLEY-(VVNG.com):  A single-engine experimental aircraft made an emergency landing near the intersection of Milpas Drive and Via Seco Street late Saturday morning.

Dispatch received communication from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) just before 10:30 a.m. that a possibly home-built experimental aircraft lost the engine and would be landing or possibly already landed somewhere south of the Apple Valley Airport.

The Fire Department, San Bernardino County Sheriff deputies and California Highway Patrol helicopter responded to search for the possibly downed plane.

Just before 11:00 a.m. the plane was located, and deputies made contact with the sole  occupant of the plane, who landed without injuries. At this time the condition of the plane is unknown. Information will be updated as it is received.
