A Laramie resident is safe and uninjured after crash landing his plane near Herrick Lane last week.

The Albany County Sheriff's Office received a call around 7:30 a.m. on Thursday, September 6 from the Laramie Regional Airport. The airport had received a call from a pilot that had recently departed. He felt a shuddering in his plane and realized that his engines were losing power.

Upon his realization, the pilot attempted to turn the plane around for a landing at the Laramie airport. He was unable to make it back, instead making a crash landing in a private field south of the interstate. The pilot, who is a Laramie resident, was the only person in the plane.

The Federal Aviation Administration has been contacted about the accident, but will not pursue an investigation.
