ASHLAND, Ore. -- Around 7 o'clock this morning, Tim Case took out this Quicksilver MX2. He was doing touch-and-go's around the Ashland airport when his engine died.
Case says after checking his fuel tank, he searched for a flat place to land, after crashing he got out his cell phone and called 911.
First responders were able to lift up the plane so case could crawl out un-hurt. He says despite the failed engine, the plane stayed relatively intact.
He's been flying for about 12 years, but has co-owned this plane for about the past three. Case says the scariest part is still not knowing what caused the engine to fail.
