TUCSON - Authorities have located a small airplane west of Tucson after a pilot radioed for help.

The FAA says the plane landed on a dirt road not far from Ryan Field Airport.

At 3:50 p.m. Monday, the pilot of a Grumman American radioed that he was low on fuel when he was about 9 miles southwest of Ryan Field, FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said.

The pilot said he would try to make it to Ryan Field or land on a local roadway, Gregor said.

Fire officials found the plane and later located the pilot at Ryan Airfield, where he had walked for help.
