Glider crash lands at north Scottsdale golf course
PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- Scary moments for a pilot who had to make an emergency landing at a north Scottsdale golf course Thursday afternoon.
Initial reports of an aircraft down came in around 12:30 p.m. Scottsdale fire officials tell Arizona’s Family that a glider landed on its wheels in the fairway of the Estancia Club golf course, near Dynamite Boulevard and Alma School Parkway. Aerial video from Arizona’s Family news chopper shows a plane in the middle of the course with small amounts of debris surrounding the aircraft.
The pilot, who was the only one on the plane, was reportedly out of the plane when firefighters arrived. No injuries were reported. The FAA and NTSB have been notified and they will investigate what led up to the crash landing.
