CDF Bronco Downed By Engine Failure

One of the California Department of Forestry's OV-10A Broncos made a forced landing in a wheat field, Friday. The aircraft had just departed Hemet-Ryan and chose to abort the flight, landing in a field with light damage. CDF uses the OV-10A to coordinate firefighting airtankers and helicopters.

The pilot was unharmed after a flight that was originally conducted in order to check out the results of recent maintenance. [Photographer David Atkinson allowed us the use of the photo of this aircraft... the same involved in the mishap]
