Small plane makes emergency landing near Meacham

FORT WORTH -- No one was injured when a small airplane made an emergency landing in a field near Meacham Airport early Saturday.

The airplane carried two people, and was on its way to Meacham from Pearland near Houston when the pilot reported a rough running engine about 9:10 a.m., said Roland Herwig, a spokesman with the Federal Aviation Administration's southwest regional office.

The pilot was able to land the plane safely in a field near Mark IV Parkway and Loop 820, Herwig said.

There was very little damage to the aircraft, Herwig said. Federal officials are investigating, Herwig said.
