One person suffered minor injuries when a two-person propeller plane bound for Waukegan had to make an emergency landing west of Plano this morning, according to police. Kendall County sheriff's officers were called to an area west of Cook Road near Sedgewick Road in unincorporated Kendall County about 10:53 a.m., following a report of a possible airplane accident, according to a news release from the sheriff's office. The pilot had reported engine trouble, an FAA spokesman said. When emergency crews arrived, they found that a single-engine Flight Design CTLS plane had made an emergency landing, according to the release. The plane landed in a field in the area, said FAA spokesman Tony Molinaro. One of the two people on board suffered minor injuries and was taken to Valley West Hospital for treatment. The other person was taken to the same hospital, but as a precaution, police said. The airplane had taken off from a small airport near St. Louis and was headed to Waukegan, officials said. The plane is registered to a man in Mundelein, according to FAA records. The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
