A pilot made an emergency landing Friday, putting his single-engine airplane down in a field north of Wiley Post Airport in the second such incident in as many days.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Roland Herwig said there was one person on board the aircraft and there are no injuries.

News video showed the pilot standing near the intact aircraft.

The pilot reported engine failure, according to Herwig.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol Capt. Chris West said the emergency landing was in a field 13 miles north of the northwest Oklahoma City airport.

The plane is a fixed wing, Jabiru USA Sport, registered to Gary Anderson of Carnelian Bay, Calif., Herwig said.

On Thursday, the pilot of another single-engine plan made an emergency landing in a wheat field northwest of the airport. He also was uninjured and had also reported engine problems.
