PHOENIX (AP) - The pilot of a small aircraft was unhurt after making an emergency landing near a north Phoenix airport.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the pilot was forced to land Thursday morning about 10 miles northwest of Deer Valley Airport when an engine stalled.
Gregor says the pilot, who was the only person on board, made the landing around 10:40 a.m.
It was not clear if the single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza was heading to the airport.
Authorities are still investigating.
