MCKINNEY, Texas — Two days after a small plane crashed into a McKinney home, another small plane landed in a field due to engine failure, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. 

A pilot reported engine failure before landing the plane Saturday afternoon one mile north of the McKinney National Airport.

Two people were on board the plane and no one was injured, the FAA said in a statement.

The emergency landing happened two days after a small plane crashed into McKinney home just west of the Aero Country Airport. The crash knocked out power and left a large gaping home in the back of the home.

While three people, including two children, were inside the home, no one was injured on the ground. Two people on board the plane were treated at a nearby hospital. 

The McKinney National Airport and Aero Country Airport are about 11 miles apart.

The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the Thursday crash.
