The pilot of a small aircraft was forced to make an emergency landing in Panama City Beach Saturday because the aircrafts engine powered down.
The pilot of the airplane, Tony Weedn was flying from Ft. Walton Beach to Orlando with three friends when he was forced to make an emergency landing on the 17th hole of the Shark Tooths golf course.
Weedn says while flying over the beach the engine stopped and he could not get it to re-power.
He contacted the FAA and told them he would need to make an emergency landing but could not make it to a runway so he found the golf course.
Luckily, Weedn able to land without damaging the plane or injuring anyone. The FAA will conduct an investigation and instructed him to the plane on the golf course until Monday.
