Navy Training Helicopter Makes Emergency Landing In Walnut Hill

December 3, 2013

A Navy training helicopter from Whiting Field made an emergency landing Tuesday afternoon in Walnut Hill.

A warning light in the aircraft prompted the pilot to make a controlled landing about 3 p.m. in a field at the corner of Highway 97 and Arthur Brown Road, directly across the intersection from Ernest Ward Middle School. There were no injuries to the three people on the helicopter.

A witness said the helicopter made what appeared to be an ordinary, controlled approach and landing in the field.

A truck and trailer from Whiting Field was dispatched to retrieve the aircraft and the personnel. photos, click to enlarge.
