Never did hear the pilot, but found, and all ok.

NOVATO, Calif. - A small aircraft that had experienced engine problems landed on a road in Novato on Thursday, according to authorities.

Firefighters responded to a report that "an experimental" aircraft carrying two people had gone down. Officials did not provide a more detailed description of the plane.

No one was injured, the Novato Fire Department said.
“We were quite lucky,” Whittet said. “There were no injuries, no damage to the aircraft and no fire. It was the best-case scenario.”

The plane landed on Levee Road, not far from Marin County Airport.

It's unclear what led the plane to land there, but fire officials told KTVU that the plane had engine problems during takeoff.
