Police and firefighter/paramedics from Glenview responded about 2:39 p.m. Sunday November 3, 2019 to a report of an emergency landing involving a private aircraft at The Glen Club, 2901 West Lake Avenue. The aircraft pilot made the emergency landing on the golf course near the 13th hole, which is near the middle west area or northwest area of the golf course. The pilot was outside the aircraft before firefighter/paramedics arrived.

Firefighters reported the aircraft was located about 300 yards from the intersection of Monterey Drive and Lake Avenue. Glenview Fire Department Battalion Chief 6 reported a lot of people standing around the aircraft. Firefighters first reached the aircraft with an ATV. Firefighters on the scene reported the pilot said the aircraft either ran out of fuel or had some time fuel problem or engine problem with the aircraft.

The Glen Club golf course is located just west of the The Glen Town Center shopping center.

Ironically the site is located where runways once existed. In 1995, the Glenview Naval Air Station was closed as part of a Base Realignment and Closure military restructuring process, and “The Glen” — including The Glen Town Center, walking and biking trails, two golf courses, the Glenview Park District Park Center, the Kohl Children’s Museum, Attea Middle School, and the North Glenview Metra station — was built. A firefighter training site, known as NIPSTA (Northeastern Illinois Public Safety Training Academy) is also located nearby to the north.

GLENVIEW, Illinois (CBS) — A small plane made an emergency landing on a golf course in Glenview Sunday afternoon, officials said.

The plane landed sometime before 3 p.m. at The Glen Club, at 2901 W. Lake Avenue.

“So we were on 13 ready to tee off when this plane comes hovering over our head – just missed the tree; obviously the engine was off. Just missed the tree and then did a nice landing. Nobody was injured. So I called it in right away,” said golfer Dave Cederberg “It was pretty scary though – just flew right over our heads.”

A law enforcement official told CBS 2’s Steven Graves it was an emergency landing, but the reason behind the landing was not immediately learned.

The general manager of The Glen Club said she’d heard the plane took off from Chicago Executive Airport in Wheeling, and the pilot was a training student who was supposed to go back to the airport. No golfers were on Hole 13 when the plane landed there, she said.

No one was injured and the plane was not damaged. A golf shop worker said the fire department responded to the plane on golf carts.
