BROOMFIELD — Authorities are investigating after the pilot of a small plane was forced to make an emergency landing on a golf course in Broomfield.

Sara Farris, a spokeswoman for North Metro Fire Rescue, tells The Broomfield Enterprise (http://bit.ly/SUAOLF ) two people were on board when the plane landed at the Omni Interlocken Resort just before noon Wednesday. Neither was injured, but the plane sustained minor damage.

Todd Schumacher, a Broomfield city council member, says he was working out at a nearby athletic club when he looked out the window and saw the plane start to go down. He says the wings wobbled, and the plane glided past an apartment building and a large tree before landing.

The names of the pilot and passenger have not been released.
