Pilot reported that upon landing the aircraft’s landing gear struck a hole, resulting in damage to the plane’s landing gear

Clark-Cowlitz Fire Rescue (CCFRR) units were dispatched at 2:31 p.m. Thursday (Oct. 6) to an aircraft emergency in the area of 30000 NW 31st Ave. in Ridgefield.

The reporting caller indicated that a plane had just crashed in a field to the south of here. A CCFR battalion chief arrived at 2:36 p.m. and reported finding a small “Cessna type” plane in the field with moderate damage. 

A CCFR engine and crew made contact with the single occupant/pilot of the plane while standing outside the aircraft.  The adult male pilot denied injury, and reported that upon landing in the field the aircraft’s landing gear struck a hole – resulting in damage to the aircraft’s landing gear. CCFR personnel then assisted the pilot with plugging a small fuel leak.  

The incident is under investigation by the regulatory agency.  

CCFR was assisted by emergency responders from American Medical Response and the Ridgefield Police Department.
