A Los Angeles Police Department plane had to make an emergency landing on a California highway. The machine and no car were damaged. No one was injured.
California Patrol Auxiliary (CHP) Aaron Bigurova told NBC that the plane landed just before 7:00 pm local time on Highway 101, about 50 kilometers north of Los Angeles.
An air instructor and his trainer were on a single machine in Cessna. There were mechanical issues immediately upon departure. ABC CHP Officer Craig Martin told a news conference near the landing site that “the instructor was able to land leadership and security”.
He added that the instructor reported the problems to the air traffic controllers at Van News Airport. They forwarded that information to the Los Angeles Police and Fire Department.
“CHP officials created the emergency landing area by slowing down traffic and converting lanes on one side of Highway 101 into an improved landing area,” Martin explained.
– In a video posted on social media, the incident appeared to be filmed, with an airplane surrounded by cars in the middle of the highway. Another shot showed him on the side of the road, NBC reported.
The incident is being investigated by the US Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board.
