A small plane was forced to make an emergency landing on Midway Road after its engine stalled Tuesday afternoon in Midway Township.
The Cessna 172K departed from the Richard I. Bong Airport in Superior at 1:45 p.m. and was flying at approximately 3,000 feet when it encountered difficulties, the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office reported. The pilot and aircraft owner, 33-year-old Tyler Nelson of Hermantown, dropped altitude but was able to safely land the single-engine aircraft near Stark Road at 2:05 p.m.
There were no injuries or damage to the plane or any property. Crews first moved the plane out of the roadway and then blocked off the scene for a short time so Nelson could take off again from Midway Road.
The Minnesota State Patrol, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and U.S. Border Patrol also assisted at the scene.
