Emergency Landing at Miller Airpark

It was a very close call for two people aboard a small airplane who executed an emergency landing in the skies over Berkeley Township late this morning.

Dispatchers at Ocean County Emergency Management say they fielded a 911 call at about 10:50 AM indicating that the craft was low on fuel, about 10 miles short of Robert J. Miller Airpark.

According to Sheriff Mike Mastronardy, firefighters from several municipalities and a rescue team from Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst sped to the vicinity as the emergency landing unfolded.

The craft touched down at 11:13 AM, dispatchers said.

The malfunction was found to be electrical, Mastronardy said, adding that neither occupant of the plane was injured.

Little was disclosed about the type of aircraft, the identities of the two aboard, or their point of origin.
