February 14, 2009 12:00:00 AM PST
A two engine plane had to make a crash landing in Rialto Saturday. The Crash happened around 10:45 a.m. In a vacant area between the 210-Freeway and Casmalia street, east of Sierra Avenue.

The Cessna Skymaster left Rialto Airport and was performing demonstrations, when it started to lose power and altitude.

The pilot decided to look for a clear area to land, shut off his fuel valves and made a rough emergency landing.

The plane was damaged but the pilot suffered only a minor injury to his forehead.

The pilot said he's been flying for 30 years and has logged over 600 hours in the Cessna. MORE LOCAL HEADLINES FROM INLAND EMPIRE
