Piper PA-38-112, N2541B: Aircraft force landed in a field - Bozeman, Montana

A flight instructor and a student were unhurt after making an emergency landing in a field north of Three Forks on Tuesday morning.

According to the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office, shortly after 9 a.m., the tower at Gallatin Field called dispatch to report that a two-passenger Tomahawk airplane crashed somewhere in the Horseshoe Hills area.

Gallatin County Search and Rescue responded, requesting a helicopter to help locate the crash. Several minutes later, however, the tower reported they had made contact with the pilot, who was safe on the ground.

The pilot and trainee said they experienced engine trouble and landed in an open field in the Clarkston area.
