A small aircraft that suddenly lost power was forced to make an emergency landing on a Granbury public road Monday morning.
According to NBC, the pilot had no choice on July 18 but to land his plane on Pearl Street, a business section of Highway 377. He landed south of the airport, about a quarter mile from the runway.
Upon landing, the landing gear failed, forcing the pilot to perform a belly landing.
The Federal Aviation Administration identified the aircraft as a 1974 Aero Commander 112 owned by the 67-year-old pilot, James Winston Jr. The one passenger on board was 26-year-old Justin Winston. Both men are residents of Tolar, Texas.
Neither man was injured, but the plane suffered damage to its propeller blades, a wing, and the fuselage. The aircraft was removed from the roadway in the early afternoon, and traffic resumed without incident.
