MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Two people were able to walk away safely from a frightening flight in southwest Miami-Dade.

On Saturday, a Cessna C-172 was forced to make a “hard landing” at Miami Executive Airport, formerly known as Kendall-Tamiami Airport. 

The plane came to rest up against the fence that lines the airport premises.

The strange sight caused traffic to back up on 137th Avenue, near 128th Street, in both directions.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue said neither the pilot nor passenger were hurt.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating what happened.

SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A small plane lost power shortly after takeoff and crashed into a fence in Southwest Miami-Dade, Saturday morning.

According to a spokesperson for Miami Executive Airport, the aircraft slid into a grassy area after losing power and wheeled into the chain-link fence, near Lindgren Road and Southwest 136th Street.

Two people were on board, but they walked away uninjured.

The plane pushed part of the fence slightly forward, but the damage appears to be minor.
