FD: Plane makes emergency landing near Anthem

ANTHEM, AZ - Daisy Mountain officials say a plane made an emergency landing near Anthem on Sunday morning. 

The incident happened before 10 a.m. in the area of 7th Avenue and Honda Bow Road, near a residential area east of Interstate 17. 

FAA officials say an American Legend Cub was forced to make the landing due to a loss of oil pressure.

The aircraft reportedly clipped a tree during the incident. 

ABC15 spoke with the pilot who says he landed where he did because it was a flat, open spot. He was also able to push the plane out of the roadway after he landed. 

No injuries were reported, according to fire officials, and FAA officials say the pilot was the only person on the aircraft. 

The FAA is investigating the issue.
