Both the pilot and plane are without a scratch after the pilot was forced to make an emergency landing in a local farm near the Lebanon Airport shortly after takeoff Friday afternoon, Oct. 7.

Sheriff Robert Bryan confirmed the pilot, who is not from Lebanon and was not identified, is OK.

According to the sheriff, the pilot was visiting friends and doing business in Lebanon when he took off to leave Friday.

At approximately 1,500 feet of altitude, the pilot told Bryan that the single-engine plane lost power.

He was able to successfully land the plane on a large open property behind the Alsup farm just south of the Lebanon Municipal Airport without damaging the plane or receiving injuries.
