Plane makes emergency landing in Metro East

EAST CARONDELET, Ill. (KMOV.com) -- A small aircraft made an emergency landing in the Metro East Tuesday after reporting issues.

The plane landed on its wheels on a farmer's field in East Carondelet after the pilot reported vibration and the scent of smoke and oil to the St. Louis Airport Tower.

Neither occupant of the aircraft was injured, but a military-grade Humvee from the East Carondelet Police Department and emergency responders met the plane upon landing to check the occupants for injuries.

The NTSB is currently investigating the cause of the incident.
