Pilot Lands At Blue Ash Airport Safely
August 7, 2008
BLUE ASH -- A small plane made a safe emergency landing Thursday afternoon at the Blue Ash airport after a hood opened in flight.
Sky 5 was passing the airport just after 2 p.m. as the Piper's pilot called in an emergency report.
The cowling, which covers the engine at the front of the plane, had unlatched and opened on one side, exposing the engine and partially blocking the view of the pilot
The plane came around and landed a bit shakily, then taxied to a stop on the tarmac.
The plane is registered to the Victory Aviation Club at the Hamilton/Fairfield Airport.
