Small plane makes emergency landing in Calera
CALERA, Okla. (KTEN) -- No injuries were reported after a small plane made an emergency landing in a Calera backyard on Thursday night.
The location along the 700 block of Pate Road is less than two miles south of Durant Regional Airport/Eaker Field.
No major damage was evident to the plane's wings or fuselage from a distance. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said additional details would have to come from the FAA, which was sending investigators to the site.
According to FlightRadar24.com, the twin-engine Piper Navajo aircraft had left Addison Airport near Dallas at 7:34 p.m. The planned destination was Jefferson City, Missouri, but the plane was diverted to Durant before coming down short of the runway just before 8 p.m.
The aircraft had started its day in Jefferson City, stopping in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and then Addison.
Aviation records show the 44-year-old plane is owned by Golling Levy Aviation of Clarkston, Michigan. It's capable of carrying as many as eight people.
The plane is listed online as being for sale for $295,000.
