Pilot, passenger injured in emergency crash landing of homemade plane

SEDONA, Ariz. (AP) -- Authorities say two people were hurt after a single-engine airplane crashed during an emergency landing in Sedona.
 
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the single-engine home-built F-1 Rocket crashed around 11:15 a.m. Saturday on a U.S. Forest Service road about 3 miles southeast of Sedona.
 
 Sedona fire spokesman Gary Johnson says it appears the aircraft possibly lost its landing gear when it tried to land on the dirt and gravel road.
 
The Yavapai County Sheriff's Department says the plane's two occupants were taken to hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. One was airlifted to Flagstaff Medical Center and the other was taken by ground to Verde Valley Medical Center.
