PERINTON — A small airplane made an emergency landing in a Perinton farm field early Monday night, and federal investigators are now looking into whatever airborne crisis forced the pilot to make such a desperate measure.

According to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, at around 6:40 p.m. Monroe County sheriff’s deputies and the Egypt Volunteer Fire Department responded to a farm field in the area of Ayrault and Turk Hill roads, not far from the Perinton Community Center.


According to the plane’s registry number and online FAA records, the aircraft is a 1980 Cessna A185F owned by John A. Roessel of Webster. Roessel was not the pilot.


Neighbors and other witnesses shot video of the Cessna as the pilot struggled and then finally touched down in the field on Turk Hill Road.


“That guy’s going down, this is it,” said Wendy Boyce as she watched the scene.


“When the engine was burping you can hear it vroom,” said Ryan Boyce, who lives nearby. “That’s when you know there was something really wrong.”


Emergency crews from Monroe County and Egypt discovered the lone pilot unharmed and the plane undamaged. The cause of the landing is still under investigation.


The pilot reported no injuries or damage to the aircraft. The FAA is conducting an investigation.


Still, neighbors said the final seconds were scary, even from the ground.


“He was coming down low, and then went back up high again and he came down again,” said Boyce.


“I swore he was going to crash and all of a sudden I heard him gun the engine and pull out,” said Robert Davis, another neighbor.


The plane apparently had engine trouble shortly after it took off from Rochester. Roessel, the plane’s owner, rushed to the scene, and then spent a few relieved minutes with the owner of the farm, who pointed out that the field could easily have been blocked by wooly obstacles — sheep.


Firefighters said the animals would have easily been able to upend the plane as it came in.


“The sheep will come up there,” said Chip Ellsworth, the farm’s owner. “The sheep are down there at that end. Yeah. Or two weeks later, the cows would’ve been out.”


Regardless, it was a new experience for Jack DeLissio, the Egypt fire chief.


“It’s the first time in the last 20 years I’ve seen a plane down,” he said. “Obviously, it could have been a mess. We are glad it wasn’t.”


The FAA and NTSB reportedly plan to come to the scene in the morning. Firefighters said then they’ll have to decide how to get the plane out of the field.

One couple didn't know what to think when they saw the plane hovering nearby.

"First, we thought it was a big, really big RC plane that someone was flying around for fun" said eyewitness Ryan Boyce
    
"Suddenly, my husband looks out the window and says, that guy is going down. The plane is about to land and sure enough, we didn't hear anything so it couldn't of been a crash? But then we heard all of the lights and sirens right away" said eyewitness Wendy Boyce.

The Egypt Volunteer Fire Department arrived on scene at 6:40 p.m. to a pilot shook up but thankful to be alive after a scary encounter.

"He was certainly nervous and concerned but he was handling it well, very professionally and he was a great help with us in making the aircraft safe" said Egypt Fire Chief Jack DeLesio

The pilot was not injured and the plane was not damaged in the landing.

It was left to stay in the field until the FAA could get a good look.
