Pilot lands aircraft on Calgary road after engine snag
Calgary, Apr 25 (IBNS): A small plane pilot used a stretch of Calgary road as a runway early today, landing on 36th Street just south of 16th Avenue N.E, after it developed engine trouble, media reports said.
There were six people on board but no injuries were reported.
The Piper Navajo plane was heading to Calgary International Airport just after 5.30am when engine trouble forced the pilot to land on the roadway.
Jason Graham, acting district chief of the Calgary Fire Department, said that the pilot did "an amazing job" to land the craft safely.
