Small Plane Lands in Omaha Neighborhood

No one was hurt when a small plane landed in a southwest Omaha neighborhood, a few hundred feet short of the Millard airport.

Pilot Eugene Puttbrese, of Frazee, Minnesota, says his single-engine Cessna ran out of fuel around 4 a.m. Friday morning, and he came down on a residential street.

Ground damage was limited to a backyard fence. Mr. Puttbrese says he’d intended to land at the Millard Airport, pick up his son, and return to Fargo.
