All clear at plane landing near Hansen's Truckstop - Humboldt County, California

A pilot that caused quite a stir when he landed his small plane Monday on a gravel bar near Hansen's Truckstop said he often sets down at the spot. 

The man, who declined to give his name, said that his landing near Highway 36 and Highway 101 was intentional. He said his plane had a flat tire and he was waiting for a replacement.

”I was just out having fun,” he said.

The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office and other local agencies responded to the scene of a possible plane down or forced landing around 1:30 p.m.

The sheriff's office said the pilot communicated to officials at the scene that the landing was done on purpose and everyone was fine.

”There was no crash. No crime was committed,” Lt. Steve Knight said.
