PUEBLO COUNTY, Colo.– A single-engine DOSS Aviation plane made an emergency landing on Tuesday in an open field in Eastern Pueblo County, according to the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO).

Pueblo County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched at about 9:50 a.m. to the area of DOT Road

A witness told deputies they reported seeing the airplane go down in the area and deputies located the plane, which had landed on its wheels, in a field located on private property approximately 500 feet from DOT Road.

The pilot told deputies he and a passenger had taken off earlier from the airport and were flying in the area when a fuel gauge indicated the plane was low on fuel, according to the PCSO.

in the field.
