A lucky Chatham pilot wasn’t injured after being forced to make an emergency landing after running out of fuel yesterday morning.

Police were  told that a plane had just been seen landing in the area of Drury Line, near Erieau.  Officers located the pilot, a 58-year-old Chatham man, in a field on Erieau Road, south of Drury Line.  His Challenger Ultralight airplane ran out of fuel before he could return to the Chatham Airport forcing him to make an emergency landing.

Luckily, the pilot was not injured.  The plane sustained damage to its landing gear.
