WHEATLAND, W.Va. — The federal FAA and NTSB are investigating an emergency landing made by a small aircraft Wednesday morning in Jefferson County.
Two people were on board for a flight lesson, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Ronald Fletcher said.
“They were doing a training maneuver. Apparently something went wrong,” Fletcher said. “They had to initiate the parachute inside the plane.”
No one was injured when the plane landed near Wheatland Road.
U.S. 340 was shut down at the intersection with Lloyd Road as emergency crews responded to the scene.
