El Monte Airport A single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza aircraft lost power Thursday evening and made  an emergency landing at El Monte Airport.

The pilot was the only person board and was not injured in the incident, which occurred about 6:45 p.m., said Ian Gregor, a Los Angeles-area spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration.

The plane was flying from Chino to Camarillo, Gregor told The Times.

The pilot diverted to El Monte after experiencing engine problems.

The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board were planning to investigate the incident.
