LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The pilot of a small airplane is unhurt after making an emergency landing about 3 1/2 miles south of the Lincoln Airport.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (http://bit.ly/1CANtnQ ) that the incident happened early Friday afternoon.

The pilot told authorities the plane was experiencing engine problems.

The Piper Comanche landed near some train tracks.

David Haring of the Lincoln Airport says the pilot alerted airport authorities about landing at the airport, but that engine issues prevented the plane from reaching the runway.
