An airplane made an emergency landing in a Yamhill County field Monday afternoon.

Deputies and firefighters responded to Southeast Leach Lane along the Lafayette Highway at 4:30 p.m.

Investigators said two men in their 20s were flying in a single-engine airplane from Washington state to San Jose, California when they experienced engine problems. They were diverted to McMinnville Municipal Airport, but ended up landing in a field a short distance from the airport.  

Deputies said both men walked away from the scene with no serious injuries and were said to be doing well.
