Plane Makes Emergency Landing On Golf Course

April 6, 1985

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) _ A small plane used by a radio station to monitor traffic bounced 150 yards through fairways and roughs at a golf course before ending up in with only minor damage on the green, police said.

″We got the call and found a Cessna 210 on the sixth green. There was very little damage to the plane and no one was hurt,″ said Lt. Thomas Telesco. ″The course suffered more damage than the plane.″

Pilot Michael Nagy, 28, of Niagara Falls, made the emergency landing at 4:18 p.m. Friday after the two-seater plane lost fuel pressure over sprawling Delaware Park near the Buffalo Zoo, Telesco said.

Neither Nagy nor Tom Langmyer, 24, of Amherst was injured, he said.

″He did a tremendous job,″ Telesco said. ″There were a lot of people in the park.″

The plane was being used by Langmyer, known as ″Captain Tom,″ to monitor road conditions for WGR-AM and FM.
