Emergency Landing In Reagan County, Texas

A pilot in a vintage World War II aircraft made an emergency landing in Reagan County on Friday.

The pilot set the  restored airplane down on FM 1357 in northern Reagan County just after noon.

The Reagan County sheriff says the pilot lost power at an altitude of about 8500-ft,  and was able to glide it down onto the highway.  He had to steer into a pasture  to avoid a truck on 1357.

The pilot was not injured - the plane was damaged.
