Emergency Landing in Colorado

Tuesday, September 24, 2013
By George Hatcher

Three people en route from Alamosa to Ogden made an emergency landing in a Trans Med LLC Cirrus SR22 #N426TF when they experienced some problems with the plane.

But they came in fast, bounced over a hill, rolled, etc, off the runway to a nearby road in Mack Colorado, around 6 pm September 23, 2013. I guess we could call this a runway excursion. It appears to have been quite an excursion from the runway. I suppose we are writing about it here because of the fast landing. We don’t know the problem that forced the pilot to land in Mack.

The pilot and his two passengers apparently suffered very minor injuries that did not prevent them from renting a car and driving from Grand Junction to Ogden.

The NTSB is investigating. The pilot and passengers were not mentioned by name.

Mack is a small town 10 miles east of the Colorado/Utah border in Mesa County, Colorado. We had never heard of it either.
