SALEM – A pilot flying a small airplane started experiencing engine trouble and made an emergency landing in a field near Salem Saturday.

Just before 10 a.m., James Oveross of Independence was flying his home-built plane from Mulino Airport to the Independence Airport, responders from the Marion County Fire District told KGW.

Oveross got lucky and was able to land the plane in a field just north of Salem. There were no reports of injuries and Oveross was able to avoid any damage to his plane.
