Small plane makes emergency landing in Fresno

An ultralight airplane had to make an emergency landing in Northwest Fresno Saturday morning.

The pilot brought the plane down in a field near Milburn and Alluvial after the engine lost power during a test flight. Authorities say the landing gear collapsed on impact because of the uneven terrain.

No one was injured, and the plane had only minimal damage.

More than two dozen Fresno City Firefighters went to the scene but most were quickly released.

The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board are now investigating the incident.
