UNION, South Carolina — Authorities say no one was injured on Thursday, August 12, when a plane was forced to make an emergency landing on a road in northern South Carolina.

The Union County Sheriff's Office said it was assisting the City of Union's public safety and fire departments following a landing in the city on what photos show was a four-lane road.

Citing the Union County Emergency Management Agency, CBS affiliate WSPA reports that the aircraft landed on Union Boulevard.

Details regarding exactly why the aircraft was forced to make the landing are unclear, but a photo does show the plane straddling two lanes with a car behind and two trucks in front. A fire truck can also be seen blocking traffic in the immediate distance.

Despite coming down somewhere other than a runway, the pilot reported no injuries according to the sheriff's office and the aircraft itself appears undamaged.

The Federal Aviation Administration has since identified the aircraft involved as a Beechcraft A36 Bonanza adding that the landing occurred just before 9:30 a.m. The agency didn't provide additional information regarding the reason for the landing.

Tail number data does confirm, through FlightAware.com, that the flight had taken off Myrtle Beach at around 8:40 a.m. It was scheduled to land in Knoxville, Tennessee around 10:40 a.m.

WHEELING, Illinois  (WLS) -- A helicopter crashed in Prospect Heights near the Chicago Executive Airport Wednesday morning.

The crash occurred on Milwaukee Avenue near Apple Drive south of Palatine Road.

Prospect Heights police said they received a call about the crash at about 6:40 a.m. Police said the pilot and sole occupant remained on the scene as authorities arrived.

"It was very scary to see it over there. I think he did a great job I guess getting in the street and not hurting anyone else. I think it's very lucky all and all," said onlooker Carol Maloney.

The helicopter sitting on its side in the middle of Milwaukee Avenue drew a crowd of onlookers. Most were relieved to learn the pilot was the only one on board and he's survived without major injury.

In fact, Ovideau Ostalus suffered a dislocated shoulder and cuts on his leg, but is otherwise feeling good.

"I have a God up there who was watching over me," Ostalus said. "I'm lucky and pretty good trained as well."

Ostalus got his pilot's license earlier this year. And the Robinson R44 Raven is a brand new 2021 model. Due to storms in the area, he decided to land at Chicago Executive Airport Tuesday night rather than try to land at his company's helipad in Morton Grove.

He checked it Wednesday morning before takeoff and it was fine. But once he was in the air, the engine started revving and then shut down.

"I started looking for a spot, 'cause I was only 300 feet off the ground," Ostalus said.

He found a spot on Milwaukee Avenue, making sure he was clear of any cars on the ground.

"I was looking to make sure people are safe," he explained.

But once on the ground, he said a rotor hit a pole and pushed the chopper onto its side. Crews used a crane to pull it onto a flatbed truck.

"It looked horrific," onlooker James Ledlow said. "You never wanna see a helicopter on its side on the road like that."

Crews brought the helicopter to a hangar at the airport, which was closed for a short time but resumed normal operations later Wednesday morning. The FAA will take a closer look as they investigate what caused the engine to fail.

On August 11, 2021, about 1000 eastern daylight time, a Cessna 150M, N66748 sustained substantial damage when it was involved in an accident near Wadsworth, Ohio. The pilot and passenger were uninjured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

The pilot reported that after she taxied to runway 21, she utilized the airplane’s checklist and performed an engine run-up, which included checking the magnetos and carburetor heat. After waiting for an arriving airplane to land, she taxied into position on the runway, held the brakes and advanced the throttle to full power before releasing the brakes to initiate the takeoff. She stated that shortly after takeoff, she noticed the airplane was not climbing normally and the stall warning horn activated. She then noticed the RPM rapidly decreased from 2500 to 1500. The pilot established best glide speed and attempted a soft-field landing to a corn field. After touchdown, the airplane nosed over, and the fuselage, vertical stabilizer, and rudder sustained substantial damage.

A detailed engine examination is pending.
