Plane loses power, lands in field instead of Livermore Airport

No injuries reported in landing 5 miles from airport

The pilot of a single-engine plane performed an emergency landing in a field near Livermore after the plane lost engine power late Tuesday.

Ian Gregor, a spokesman with the Federal Aviation Administration said the two-seater plane, a Cessna 152, landed in a field about 5 miles east of the Livermore Airport around 7 p.m.

Neither of the two people on board the plane was injured and no damage to the plane was reported, Gregor said.

The FAA is investigating the emergency landing.
