PHOENIX -- A Federal Aviation Administration official says a small plane approaching Phoenix Deer Valley Airport was forced to make an emergency landing on a city street about three miles west of the airport.

No one was injured.

FAA spokeswoman Laura Brown says the pilot reported engine problems that forced him to land on 43rd Avenue in northwest Phoenix about 9:20 a.m. Saturday.

Brown did not have specifics on the engine problems.

However, she says pilots don't usually land on a road unless they have a serious reason to do so.

The single-engine plane, a Van's Aircraft RV-6, was not damaged. The plane is an experimental aircraft with a 23-foot wingspan.
