Pilot Makes Forced Landing Because Of Fog

GLENWILLOW, Ohio - A pilot from North Dakota was forced to make an emergency landing onto a Cuyahoga County field Thursday afternoon, Action News reported.

The pilot brought his experimental light plane down onto a patch of land in the village of Glenwillow, just southwest of Solon near the Summit County line.

The pilot, who was flying the plane from North Dakota to Erie, Pa., cited unusually thick fog as the reason for his forced landing.

He was not injured and the plane was not noticeably damaged.

The plane went down in a field at the intersection of Cochran and Pettibone roads not far from the Village Hall and Tinker's Creek.

After more than an hour on the ground, the pilot used a flat section of the field as a runway and took off with the intention of completing his trip to Erie.
