SUPERIOR, Colo. — A small plane has made an emergency landing near the Colorado town of Superior.
According to the Boulder County Sheriff, three people were on board a single-engine Cessna when the plane lost power.
The pilot did not believe he could safely make it back to the airport and decided to make a “soft landing” in a field.
No one was injured and the plane was not damaged.
