Mystery Plane Belongs to Jonesboro Attorney

SEPTEMBER 5, 2006 - Posted at 8:49 a.m. CDT

 

LAKE CITY, AR - A six-passenger plane that was found unattended early last night in an eastern Craighead County bean field has been identified as belonging to a Jonesboro attorney.

The Bonanza 836 single-engine plane was discovered at approximately 6:30 p.m. in a soybean field on Craighead County Road 975 near Lake City.  When Sheriff's deputies arrived at the scene to investigate the plane, they found that it had crash-landed in the field and slid approximately 75 feet before coming to a stop.  However, no one was around the aircraft at the time.

Craighead County Sheriff's Deputy John Varner told K8 News this morning that authorities have since learned that the plane belongs to Jonesboro attorney David Calhoun.  Calhoun told authorities that the plane's engine stopped, forcing him to put the plane down in the field, which is owned by farmer Danny Russell.

Varner said there were no injuries, and the plane did not sustain any major damage.
