Farr Field Airport (ME33), Harpswell, Maine

Plane makes emergency landing in Harpswell near Route 123

HARPSWELL — A plane made an emergency landing on a grass air strip in Harpswell on Sunday evening after running out of fuel.

Few details were available at 8 p.m., although Cumberland County dispatcher said the plane landed in the area of Route 123 — also known as Harpswell Neck Road — and Basin Cove Road.

The airstrip is off Birchmere Lane in Harpswell Neck, Cundy’s Harbor Fire Chief Ben Wallace Jr. said.

Brunswick Fire Lt. John Faith said a Brunswick rescue unit responded, but the occupants of the plane declined to be taken to the hospital.

The man and his wife, whose names were not available, were not injured.

“He did a good job,”  Harpswell Neck Fire Chief Frank Hilton said of the pilot. 

The plane sustained minor damage, and will need to be repaired before it can be flown.
