A Cherokee Six 300 plane, flown by Richard Gateley of Fort Worth, in route to Harlingen from Fort Worth had to make an emergency landing in a field in Erath County Monday due to a loss in oil pressure at 7,000 feet. There were no injuries, said passenger, Carter Furguson, also of Fort Worth, who praised Gateley for the excellent landing. The plane was trying to make it to Stephenville Airport but had to land near C.R. 454 between Hwy. 281 and C.R. 914.
