Elko, Nevada: Private plane landing in Kittridge Canyon scares residents

By CALEY COOK — Elko Daily

ELKO — A small plane that landed on a private runway in Kittridge Canyon on Monday afternoon prompted worried calls to law enforcement, but despite coming in low in high winds, the pilot and plane were perfectly fine, said Elko County Undersheriff Clair Morris.

Dispatch received calls from weather service employees — who were working in a tower above Kittridge Canyon — saying that the plane looked like it had crashed, Morris said.

Deputies ran to the scene and found the pilot was fine despite a bumpy landing.

"He comes in and out of there all the time," Morris said. "All was well."
