KUSA - A small plane made an emergency landing at a snowy Broomfield golf course near the Rocky Mountain Regional Airport Friday afternoon.
Airport officials said the two men on board were able to walk away from the incident.
No one on the ground at the Omni Interlocken Resort golf club were injured. The plane suffered moderate structural damage, according to Broomfield police.
"An Aero Comander that departed to the west off our main runway experienced loss of engine power on both engines. The aircraft was able to have enough safe altitude to make a turn and land safely on the golf course," Kenny Maenpa, Director of the Rocky Mountain Metro Airport, said.
The Broomfield Enterprise reports a witness watched the plane go down but did not see any flames.
The director of golf for the Omni said he has never seen a plane crash before, but the course has an emergency plan, since it is less than two miles from the airport.
"We have well over 120,000 operations out of our airport a year, so this is very rare activity," Maenpa said.
The FAA and the NTSB are investigating the landing. The plane is expected to be moved from the golf course by Saturday afternoon.
