WESTFIELD, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Two pilots were forced to make an emergency landing on Sunday when the plane they were flying developed engine trouble.

Craig Maynard and his father, Rodney Maynard, were flying their Cessna 172C Skyhawk in the Westfield area when the troubles started. Rodney spotted the field and Craig was able to get the plane turned back around to make the emergency landing.  

The two had departed from the Houlton Airport, did a touch-and-go landing at the Presque Isle Airport, and were returning to Houlton when the plane started having engine problems, Maine State Police said.

No one was injured in the crash and the plane was not damaged.

Last summer Craig and Rodney made an emergency landing on Interstate 95, in Houlton, after the same plane had engine trouble.
