Small plane lands on Iowa road in emergency

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — A small plane had to be towed to the airport on a truck after safely landing on an eastern Iowa road.

The Black Hawk County Sheriff’s office said the plane was flying from Longmont, Colorado, to an annual air show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, when it had engine trouble around 8 p.m. Saturday.

49-year-old Michael Hickman and his 22-year-old son James had to land the plane on a road north of the Waterloo Regional Airport.

No one was injured in the landing, and the plane wasn’t damaged.
