Written by Warren Ellison on June 15, 2017
A small airplane with a banner advertising “Meet Lady Antebellum text CMA to 31996” made an emergency landing due to an engine failure while flying around downtown Nashville. The plane landed at about 2:15 p.m. Saturday afternoon on a grassy area where Interstate 65 meets Interstate 40, near Jefferson Street. No injuries have been reported.
“I didn’t have a lot of choices. I maneuvered the airplane, picked my spot and landed in it,” pilot Wayne Mansfield, who felt the engine sputtering, said. He believes the problem was an exhaust valve failure. “So unbelievably glad everyone is ok!” Lady A tweeted upon hearing the news.
