Cessna 172S Skyhawk SP, N2097T: Incident occurred December 23, 2019 near West Memphis Municipal Airport (KAWM), Crittenden County, Arkansas

Jay Air LLC

A commercial pilot successfully landed this Cessna 172S Skyhawk SP in a winter wheat field near James Mill Road and Rosebud Island Road, Monday morning after an apparent mechanical failure. A failed cylinder blew the cowling open spewing oil and the pilot circled the farm field seven miles north of the West Memphis Municipal Airport.

  1. When they say an engine blew, this could be what they mean. Glad it happened in a place where he could land safely.
