Preliminary investigation revealed that Reggie Long, 65, and his passenger, Thomas Hauck, 78, both from Newburgh, took off from the Boonville Airport around 11:00 a.m. Shortly after taking off in Long’s 1995 homemade experimental aircraft, he noticed an unusual vibration and didn’t think he could safely return to the airport. Long made an emergency landing in a farm field, located just west of S.R. 61 across from Boonville Jr. High School. During the emergency landing, Long’s aircraft received damage to its landing gear. Long and Hauck were both wearing their seat belts and were not injured. Long has been flying since 1996. The investigation is continuing.
