A Med-Trans Corporation-owned AirMed Regional King Air C-90 plane had to make an emergency landing in a field east of Rattan, Oklahoma, US with a pilot, nurse and paramedic on board. None were injured, according to a report by local news outlet KXII News 12.

It is not yet known what forced the twin-engine aircraft to make the landing, though the matter is being investigated by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Jim Gregory, a spokesperson for Med-Trans Corporation, reportedly told local press: “Local/State Law Enforcement and 911 are on scene to secure the aircraft and ensure crew safety. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and FAA authorities have been notified and we are co-operating fully with the investigation.”
