"Whether you believe in miracles or not, we had our own miracle happen on Saturday which you may or may not have heard about. Around 12pm over Portland, one of our airplanes experienced an unexpected event requiring the airplane to make an emergency landing in the intersection of Greeley and Going in North Portland. Avoiding power lines, trees, utility poles, and cars, incredibly there was no damage to the airplane and most importantly nobody was injured. Words can’t describe how thankful I am to have had an amazing pilot flying during that time who kept a cool head and kept everyone safe from start to finish. Also a very big thank you to @pdxairport air traffic control, as well as their fire department, and to @pdxfirerescue and @portlandpolice for their quick response in ensuring everyone was ok. Also, thank you to all of the unnamed people who stopped by offering us water and any help they could during a very strange day. The only word I can really use is ‘humbling’ and for that I am extremely grateful." -Envi Adventures

A Cessna 182A lost power and made an emergency landing onto a street in North Portland on Saturday, according to Portland Fire & Rescue.

The pilot and three passengers - a man, a woman and a young boy – were unharmed. 

Officers at the Portland Police Bureau North Precinct responded to North Greeley Avenue at North Going Street after receiving reports that an airplane had landed on the street, causing no accidents. The street was closed Saturday afternoon while an investigation was conducted.

Casey Holdahl, who was at the scene, described the pilot as in his late 20s. He was reportedly wearing a shirt with the logo of “Envi Adventures” - an air-tourism company that provides commercial flights over scenic areas like Mt. Hood, downtown Portland and the Columbia River Gorge.
