Plane makes emergency landing on Gila River Indian Community - Arizona


The pilot declared mayday for unknown reasons before going down about five miles east of Estrella Airport, according to a Federal Aviation Administration statement. 

The aircraft, a Cessna 206, appeared to have landed on an old ultralight landing strip at around 6:10 p.m. Wednesday on Gila River land south of Phoenix, according to Ian Gregor, an FAA spokesman.​

The aircraft had been carrying skydivers but landed after the skydivers had exited, Gregor said.
