Small plane makes an emergency landing in the desert near Beaver Dam!

A young pilot and his father were flying from St. George to Palm Springs on their way home to San Diego when they had an electrical fire on board.  The smoke had filled the cockpit and it was getting worse.  The pilot made the decision to make an emergency landing in the desert between Hwy 91 and the Virgin River.

Amazingly, the two on board were just fine and the plane only suffered minor damage!  The father said he had experienced rougher landings on a real runway!

My neighbor, Cecil Cutler, and I were out in the area target practicing when we saw the plane just after it had landed. 

A sheriff deputy and a fire truck were on site within 20 minutes.
