SKIATOOK — A single-engine airplane crashed Wednesday evening, but the pilot was not hurt, authorities said.
Just before 7 p.m., a Cessna 182 ran out of fuel and the pilot made a forced landing in a field behind a Walmart, FAA spokesman Lynn Lunsford said.
The pilot was flying alone and not hurt, but the plane did sustain damage. Investigators were sent to the scene Wednesday night, but the extent of the damage was not yet known, Lunsford said.
The airplane — built in 1957 — is registered to Skydive Airtight, according to FAA records. Skydive Airtight is a skydiving company based in Skiatook.
A person who answered the phone there declined to comment.
