MACOMB — A couple made an emergency landing at Macomb Municipal Airport Monday evening with no injuries reported.

According to McDonough County Sheriff Rick VanBrooker, emergency responders were dispatched about 9:45 p.m. to the airport on a report of a plane crash. 

VanBrooker said that on arrival firefighters and law enforcement found a man and woman outside the prop plane unharmed. 

The couple was flying from Florida to Burlington, Iowa, when there was a sudden loss of power. 

The pilot successfully landed the plane, but one of the wheels slipped off the edge of the runway as the pilot turned toward the hangar. 

The plane was eventually fully placed back on the runway, and emergency medical personnel cleared the scene about 10 p.m.
