Plane Bound for McCollum Lands on I-575
"Everyone is safe," Officer Mike Bowman, spokesman for the Cobb County Police Department, told Kennesaw Patch.
A plane bound for McCollum Field had to make an emergency landing this afternoon on Interstate 575 South just south of Barrett Parkway.
Three people were aboard the plane, a fixed wing single-engine aircraft that is registered to Jesse Smalley of Kennesaw, according to the Federal Aviation Administration Registry.
"No injuries on the ground and no injuries in the aircraft," Officer Mike Bowman, spokesman for the Cobb County Police Department, told Kennesaw Patch. Bowman said he learned of the emergency landing at 1:06 p.m. today.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Consitution, the plane was on its final approach to McCollum Field when it lost power.
The plane was manufactured in 1965, according to the FAA.
Authorities were still on the scene just before 4 p.m. and only one southbound lane of I-575 was open as officials removed the plane from the highway.
