A pilot used a dry portion of the Los Angeles River in Vernon to make an emergency landing Friday.

The Piper PA25, a banner-towing style aircraft, made the landing about 1:10 p.m., according to Ian Gregor of the FAA Pacific Division.

The circumstances around the landing were not immediately known, but the pilot was uninjured, according to Gregor.

The plane, with a tail number of N145AB, was not damaged and no one besides the pilot was on board, Gregor said.

Los Angeles County firefighters were initially called to the location near Atlantic Boulevard and Bandini Boulevard (map) to assist, but the call was later cancelled, according to Inspector Chris Reade of the Fire Department.
