ITHICA, Mich. (WILX) - It was a scary scene for a pilot and a passenger as a plane in Gratiot County had to make an emergency landing Saturday.
The Gratiot County Sheriff’s Office says a possible fuel pump issue is to blame.
During a flight from Brighton to Newberry the plane had mechanical issues. The pilot attempted to land at the Gratiot Community Airport around 10:30 p.m.
However, as the situation evolved, the plane was forced to make an emergency landing in a farm field.
