A private one engine airplane required an emergency landing on Highway 14 on Friday, January 2, about 13 miles east of Philip.
The engine of Lee Vaughan's Beech experienced mechanical difficulties just after 4:00 p.m. "You may think that you rise to the occasion, but you actually fall back to the highest level of your training," said Vaughan, who has taken many area children, with their parents, for their first airplane flight.
