As we previously reported, a plane made an emergency landing at the Concord Naval Weapons station this evening.
Fortunately, no injuries were reported.
Both Craig Cannon and one of our friendly photographers named “ratstalker” were able to capture a few images, and “ratstalker” has a few more details about the emergency landing.
The aircraft was an older ercoupe in absolutely stellar condition. Pilot reported possible fire, north of the field. Tower told ConFire the aircraft was down “on a rd near hwy 4”. The plane landed between the Kinne Bridge Overcrossing and Lynwood Dr. The pilot did a bang up job landing. Doesn’t look like ANY damage to aircraft! He was obviously OK, talking on phone, I was the first person there. Sheriff helicopter overhead about the same time I got there.
Thanks again to “ratstalker” and to Craig Cannon for the pictures!
