PARSONSFIELD, Maine (AP) - A Maine sheriff’s department says the pilot of a small plane made an emergency landing on a golf course after heavy rain and fog made flying dangerous.

The York County sheriff’s office says 66-year-old pilot Gary Soucy, of Brewer, landed his single engine Piper Cherokee at 7:50 a.m. Saturday on the second hole of the Province Lake Golf Club in Parsonsfield.

Officials say Soucy had left the Waterville Airport on route to Oshkosh, Wisconsin, but after encountering bad weather he decided to make the emergency landing.

Soucy was alone and there was no apparent damage to the aircraft.

The sheriff’s department says the Federal Aviation Administration was notified and the aircraft will be inspected before it can be removed from the golf course.

The golf course remained open.


This story has been corrected to show the spelling of the pilot’s name is Soucy.
