SUNRIVER, OR -- Two planes made emergency landings in Oregon, Tuesday. A 50-year-old Bend man was flying his glider when he suddenly lost altitude and made an emergency landing on the side of Highway 97, south of Sunriver. The plane hit a sign on the side of the highway during landing and had to be hauled away, but Pilot Henry Irvine wasn’t hurt.

 

A single-engine plane flying near Clatskanie over the Columbia River encountered mechanical problems. The pilot attempted to land on a sand bar at Wallace Island but the wheels dug into the sand and the plane flipped (pictured above). That pilot also wasn’t hurt, and was rescued by a Coast Guard helicopter crew.
