Quad City Challenger II, N105WZ: Incident occurred February 02, 2019 in Stacy, Chisago County, Minnesota and Incident occurred January 02, 2017 in Princeton, Minnesota

STACY, Minn. (FOX 9) - A small, yellow plane made an emergency landing on an I-35 exit ramp in Stacy, Minnesota after 11 a.m. Saturday. 

According to the Chisago County Sheriff’s Office, the plane was overheating and had to make an emergency landing.

The pilot, Michael Robbins, of Green Lake, Minn., saw on his temperature gauge that his plane was at an unsafe temperature to continue to fly and determined he needed to land quickly, according to Sgt. Steve Pouti of the Chisago County Sheriff's Office. 

Robbins decided to use the exit ramp to land and then he taxied the plane to a Kwik Trip parking lot in the area.

Later, the pilot determined the issue was due to a coolant leak, which he has since fixed. 

The Sheriff’s Office said there were no injuries or damage as a result of the emergency landing. 

The FAA was notified of the incident, but does not need to get involved because no injuries or damage to property occurred. The landing is not classified as a crash.

In a Facebook post about the incident, the Chisago County Sheriff’s Office joked, “We are deciding whether or not to issue him a citation for being quadruple parked though.”

A small plane made a dramatic but ultimately safe landing Saturday morning on an exit ramp to Interstate 35 in Stacy, Minn., northeast of the Twin Cities,

According to the Chisago County Sheriff’s Office, the fixed-wing single-engine experimental plane was forced to make an emergency landing when it “overheated.” The pilot brought it down on the exit ramp and taxied to the parking lot of a nearby Kwik Trip at about 9:30 a.m.

No one was hurt and the plane appeared undamaged, but the Sheriff’s Office noted wryly in a tweet about the incident that a citation “was issued for quadruple parking.”

According to online records, the plane is co-owned by Michael L. Robbins of Cambridge, Minnesota.
