Whiting Field training helicopter makes emergency landing in Molino, gets stuck in mud


A Navy training helicopter from Whiting Field made an emergency landing late Wednesday afternoon in Molino.

A warning light in the aircraft prompted the pilot to make a controlled landing in a field on Highway 97 across from Molino Park Elementary School. There were no injuries to the helicopter crew. A witness said the helicopter made what appeared to be an ordinary, controlled approach and landing in the field.

A truck and trailer from Whiting Field was dispatched to retrieve the aircraft and the personnel.
