photo by Karl HoreisPilot Alfred Speckman, in gray shirt with brief case, talks with officers after he crash landed an early 1970's model 172 Cessna near the Waste Water Treatment Plant on North Edmonds Drive and East Fifth Street. Speckman and his two passengers were transported to Reno for treatment by a private party. No one was seriously hurt in the crash. The plane lost power near the airport and clipped a power line which started a small brush fire, which was extinguished.
