WOLCOTT, Colo. (AP) - A pilot and his passenger walked away unharmed after an emergency landing on a golf course in Wolcott.

Jessie Mosher, a spokeswoman for the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office, says the pilot landed his 1994 experimental aircraft, known as a “Goat,” on the fairway of the Eagle Springs Golf Club after the plane lost oil pressure just after 11 a.m. Monday.

The Federal Aviation Administration will investigate.

Authorities have not released the names of the pilot or his passenger.
