Jacksonville police say a pilot and passenger sustained minor injuries when their small single-engine airplane made a hard landing Sunday at Herlong Recreational Airport on the city’s Westside.

The pilot told police he had to make an emergency landing immediately after taking off about 11:30 a.m. from Runway 7 at the airport, 9300 Normandy Blvd., the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said.

The Sheriff’s Office said he told them that he lost all power about 300 feet off the ground. He tried to land the 1977 four-seat Mooney M20J aircraft just east of the runway in a grassy field. But the plane skidded to a rest just east of the runway, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Federal Aviation Administration investigators were en route to the scene to interview the pilot and passenger, whose names weren’t released. The Sheriff’s Office is assisting in the investigation, police said.

The plane is registered to an owner in Morristown, Tenn, according to FAA records.
