Reported plane crash ruled intentional landing
What has been described as a two-seat "bush" type of aircraft made a landing on a sandbar near Moore's Island - located on the Illinois side of the Mississippi River a mile from the Jerry F. Costello Lock and Dam - on Friday. The incident was originally reported as a plane crash by a Ste. Genevieve resident who saw the aircraft land. According to Randolph County Sheriff Shannon Wolff, upon landing, one of the plane's wings got caught on the sand and damaged the wing and the aircraft's nose.
