Emergency landing on Highway in WI

Postby WiredforFlight » Tue Aug 28, 2012 4:17 pm

A small plane made an emergency landing on Highway 70 W in Minocqua Wisconsin Friday night. The plane's pilot and co-pilot say the plane's engine failed, forcing them to land there.

I know this area well, it is heavily wooded with little farm land and I have always thought to look for roads when I have been flying up there. More or less your choices are swamp, forest, (very little) farms, lakes, or roads. I have always thought a road was the best option of the set.
