BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Boulder County sheriff's officials say a pilot suffered only minor injuries from landing her single-engine plane after it lost power about 3 miles from the Boulder airport.
Sgt. Lori Cox says the pilot was returning to the airport after dropping off some skydivers Tuesday evening when her plane lost power at 8,000 feet above ground. Cox says the pilot wasn't able to regain power and landed short of the airport runway, not far from a home.
Cox says the plane had some front-end damage but landed safely.
