LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – A student pilot safely landed a plane Friday night on U.S. 95 near Boulder City after it lost power, law enforcement said.
Boulder City police and Nevada Highway Patrol troopers were investigating an emergency landing on the highway near State Route 165 at about 8 p.m.
The plane landed on the highway after it malfunctioned and lost power, according to authorities.
The student pilot was able to safely land the plane. The pilot and instructor — the only two onboard — then pushed the plane out of the way of traffic.
The pilot, instructor and a mechanic worked to get the plane operational or towed back to the Boulder City Airport, police said.
Neither of the two onboard was injured, authorities said.
