McPHERSON, Kan. (WIBW) -- A total loss of engine forced a small plane to land on a McPherson Co. road early Tuesday afternoon.
According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, Ian Barnhart left Eisenhower Airport, in Wichita, around 12:30 p.m. and was taking the plane on a routine flight check.
While over McPherson Co., the 22-year-old pilot and his passenger, Michael Parisi, 23, noticed mechanical indicators that prompted them to try an emergency landing. As they approached the blacktop, they suffered a total loss of engine power that forced them to land on 21st Ave. near the Overland Rd. intersection.
On their way down, KHP says they clipped a power line that damaged the landing gear of the plane.
Neither Barnhart nor Parisi were hurt in the landing.
