Sherburne County Sheriff Joel Brott cited rain and poor visibility as factors that lead to a single engine airplane to land northwest of the St. Cloud Regional Airport on Sherburne County Road 90 Tuesday afternoon.
The aircraft was flown by 67-year-old Bruce Deckinga of Petoskey, Michigan. Deckinga and two adult passengers were flying back to Michigan after a trip to the Dakotas. Deckinga had scheduled a stop at the St. Cloud Regional Airport to refuel.
No one was injured and no damage was done to the plane or vehicles on the road.
The Federal Aviation Administration was notified and will investigate the incident.
