Plane lands in field near Springfield-Beckley airport; OSP on scene


A small plane landed in a field this evening not far from a local airport.

The plane touched down around 5 p.m. in the area of Blee and West Jackson roads, near Ohio 72, according to a witness.

There were no reports of injuries, and it’s not clear why the pilot was not able to reach the nearby Springfield-Beckley Municipal Airport at 1251 W. Blee Road four miles south of the city of Springfield.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Springfield Post confirmed troopers were on the scene, but only would say the incident was under investigation.

Airport and fixed-base operator Spectra Jet staff could not be reached.
