I-eatner Hlver Bulletin vveanesaay, June I, zu 14 3/ No serious injuries after forced landing Mike Taborski Publisher Four people escaped serious injuries when the plane they were aboard was forced to make an emergency landing in a pasture just after departing Quincy's Gansner Airport on Sunday, June 15, at around 11 a.m. The plane's pilot and co-owner, Larry Parker, was offering scenic flights during the annual Father's Day Fly-In festivities at the airport. He said it was his sixth Or seventh scenic flight that morning. The passengers, Shawn Stetler and his two daughters, Jennifer Marie, 34, and Mariah Rose, 15, had nothing but high praise for the way Parker handled the off-airport landing. "It was by the grace of God and the courage and skills of the pilot that we were able to walk away from this mishap," Shawn Stetler said. The Quincy resident, who says he hasn't missed attending any of these annual airport day festivities, was set to enjoy his third scenic flight in as many years with his two daughters. He said the plane's engine seemed to be running smoothly as it departed the airport. He said the nose of the airplane was pointed straight up after liftoff but they were only a couple of feet off the ground and couldn't get any lift. When the pilot told them to brace themselves for a hard landing, Stetler said his parental instincts took over. "I grabbed hold of my daughters just before the plane touched down. We were so lucky the nose wheel didn't hit a rut and flip the plane over on its back," he said. Stetler sustained the only injuries,, a black eye and sore neck and shoulder. It took about four hours, numerous volunteers and an escort from the California Highway Patrol to get the plane out of the field owned by Phil Bresciani, and tow it down Quincy Junction Road and ,through town to get it back :to the airport Sunday , afternoon.
