OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma City firefighters say the pilot of a small plane made an emergency landing along a roadway when the aircraft had mechanical problems heading to an airport.

Fire Captain David Macy said the pilot was trying to land the single-propeller plane at Wiley Post Airport just before 3 p.m. Monday when the engine quit working. The man flying the plane brought it down on the side of a road just north of the airport and skipped a few times into a field . He was the only person in the plane and was not hurt.

Macy said the pilot would have landed on the road that is mostly surrounded by fields and a nearby strip of businesses, but he avoided that because cars were driving on it.

A pilot made an emergency landing when the engine stalled in northwest Oklahoma City en route to Wiley Post Airport, firefighters reported.

No one aboard the single-propeller airplane was injured about 2:50 p.m. as the pilot landed safely at Wiley Post Airport, 8400 Silver Crossing. The pilot thought he ran out of fuel, but the problem could have been a mechanical failure, said fire Capt. David Macy.

The pilot landed just south of the runway, Macy said. Police are keeping motorists out of the area.
