The Ohio State Highway Patrol said a single-engine plane was forced to make an emergency landing on a fairway at Stillmeadow Country Club in Cincinnati shortly before 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 12, reported WCPO Channel 9 in Cincinnati.
A preliminary investigation indicated that the plane experienced engine failure after taking off from the Clermont County Airport east of Cincinnati. Investigators said the plane hit a sand bunker before coming to a stop and then rolled partially on its side on a green.
The highway patrol identified the two people on board as pilot Kenneth Howes and passenger and owner Karla Goodhouse, both of St. Clair, Ill. No injuries were reported.
Another pilot flying over the area, Justin Anderson, said he could hear Howes reporting engine troubles after taking off, WCPO reported.
The Federal Aviation Administration also responded to the scene to help the Highway Patrol’s Batavia, Ohio post with the investigation.
