'Experimental plane' makes emergency landing in Maine marsh after engine failure
A pilot of an "experimental" airplane walked away without a scratch after being forced to land in a marsh in Passadumkeag on Wednesday, a Penobscot County sheriff's deputy said. Deputy Jason Matheson described the plane as an "experimental" one-seater that had been airborne for some time when its engine seized up at about 8 p.m. The pilot, whose name Matheson did not record, was far from the only airport close by, in Lincoln, so he chose to land in a treeless, swampy area off Pleasant Street north of Passadumkeag village, he said.
