ADA TOWNSHIP, Mich. – A small plane delivering cargo for Federal Express has crashed about six miles north of the Grand Rapids airport.
The pilot walked away unhurt and no one on the ground was injured.
A Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman says the single-engine Cessna 208 crashed about 8:35 p.m. Friday in Kent County’s Ada Township.
FedEx spokeswoman Sally Davenport says the pilot was headed from Traverse City to Gerald R. Ford International Airport when he made an emergency landing.
The Grand Rapids Press reports the plane lost power and headed for an open field.
Its left wing was sheared off by trees before touching down while going about 90 mph.
Davenport says the plane belongs to CSA Air Inc., which carries freight under contract with Memphis, Tenn.-based FedEx.
FAA spokeswoman Elizabeth Isham Cory says investigators are headed to the scene.
