 A single-engine airplane made an emergency landing Friday morning, the FAA said.  

The Federal Aviation Administration says it will investigate a small plane's emergency landing Friday in a field near Southwest Ranches.  

 No injuries were reported after the landing, which happened about 10:30 a.m. near Griffin and Hancock roads. Two people were aboard the aircraft, according to Jim Peters, with the FAA.

The aircraft is a SeaRey single-engine plane based in Pembroke Pines, and its registered owner is Captain Services of Fort Lauderdale LLC, registration records show.

The plane, intact after the landing, was reportedly forced to land because of an engine-related problem, Peters said. 

 A group of cows approached the area of the plane after it landed, aerial images showed. Minutes after the landing, firefighters spoke to the plane's occupants.

The plane had departed North Perry Airport in Hollywood, Peters said. The field where it landed is about six miles northwest of the airport, Peters said. The incident occurred near the boundary line of Southwest Ranches and Davie.

A small, single-engine airplane made an emergency landing onto an open field in Southwest Ranches on Friday. No one was injured, Broward Sheriff’s Office reported, and the airplane did not appear to suffer significant damage.

An investigation into the cause of the emergency landing will be conducted by the Federal Aviation Administration, police said.

The plane went down in the area of Griffin and Hancock roads.
