A pilot made an emergency landing south of Jamestown Tuesday when the plane he was piloting started experiencing mechanical problems.
The North Dakota Highway Patrol says 46-year-old Keith Melius, of Faulkton, S.D., landed the 1978 Cessna 172 on a snow-covered field about 17 miles south of Jamestown at 1:45 p.m. Tuesday.
Melius was not injured. The aircraft did suffer some damage, though how much has not been determined.
The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the incident.
