Plane Makes Emergency Landing on Bowling Green Golf Course

Posted: Updated:
Bowling Green, KY -

A scary situation happened at Crosswinds Golf Course in Bowling Green after the pilot of a plane is forced to make an emergency landing.
 
The Jenny JN-4 plane took off from the Bowling Green Warren County Regional Airport at approximately 11 am Saturday morning.

Shortly after take-off, ground employees of the airport say they heard engine trouble… just moments later, the pilot made an emergency landing just 400 feet from the airport onto fairway of the 4th hole of Crosswinds Golf Course.

Officials say the pilot walked away from the scene with possible lacerations to the head and face… he was taken to the Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.

Airport manager Rob Barnett says the plane is owned by a nonprofit organization and operated by volunteers.

There’s no word yet on what caused the crash… the FAA is investigating.
