A simulated engine failure turned into the real thing Wednesday morning as a 1964 single-engine Cherokee Piper had to make an emergency landing due to engine failure on private property in the area of the Wildflower subdivision. The plane touched down in one field, rolled through a fence, crossed a private road and went through another fence, settling in an open field. No injuries were reported for the individuals involved in the crash, but significant damage was reported to the leading edges of both wings and the nose cone, and there was damage to the landing gear. People are asked to stay away from the site, which is on private property.
