Plane had previous emergency landing

Same plane, different pilot, in Monday night’s emergency landing along I-94 in Racine County, versus another “abnormal” touchdown 2 months ago in a farm field.

The plane, with serious damage, belongs to Skydive Midwest, based at nearby Sylvania Airport, The pilot Monday night, 41 year-old Keith George, was not hurt, while 26 year-old passenger Megan Malinowski, suffered minor injuries. The Racine County Sheriff’s Department says George was not the pilot in the August 25th bean field landing. Both incidents are now under FAA investigation.
