Engine trouble forces hard plane landing in Anderson Co.

Federal Aviation Administration officials are trying to figure out what caused an engine failure on a small plane that was forced to make a hard landing in Anderson County.

Two people on board the plane were not injured.

Anderson County Sheriff’s deputies say the plane landed near Omega Farms Ln. and Long Road off Highway 81. The plane landed nose down and is registered to a person out of Simpsonville.

Taylor Jones with Emergency Services say the plane was being flown by a flight student with his instructor. They were on a high performance endorsement training flight.

The pair flew from the Greenville Downtown Airport to the Anderson Airport. The plane was on the return flight to Greenville when the pilot had engine trouble.

 

Both the instructor and pilot are fine after landing in the pasture. We’re told the Beechcraft 35 Bonanza plane was removed from the pasture Monday night..
