Pilot and passenger walked away unharmed after they were forced to land their small plane in a field north of Washougal Sunday afternoon.

Emergency crews were called to a large field in the 30900 block of Northeast 10th Street around 2 p.m., Clark County sheriff’s Deputy Chris Story said, after a plane en route to land at Grove Field made an emergency landing.

Story said the pair in the single-engine plane were practicing what to do in a stall when the plane suffered some kind of mechanical failure.

It was clear the airfield was too far away, Story said, so they landed the plane in the empty field, which is about 2 miles west of the Grove Field. No one was hurt and no property was damaged, Story said. The plane received minor damage.

Story said the plane will remain in the property owner’s field until the plane’s owners can tow it away. The Federal Aviation Administration was also investigating, he said.
