ARMUCHEE, Georgia -- A single-engine aircraft made an emergency landing on U.S. 27 Saturday morning near Sike Storey Road, according to Floyd Police Sgt. Chris Fincher.

The first call to 911 reporting the aircraft came in at 11:25 a.m. The pilot of the plane, flying out of Cartersville, said he felt the engine of the craft seizing up and did not feel he could make it safely to Richard B. Russell Regional Airport, according to Tim Herrington, Floyd County EMA director.

The plane landed safely with no injuries to those on board or on the ground, and no additional damage to the plane or to any vehicles. It was towed to the airport without incident. Herrington said the Federal Aviation Administration has been notified and their investigators will likely arrive Monday to look into the incident.

A small plane had to make an emergency landing on U.S. 27 Southbound near Sike Storey Road in Armuchee on Saturday morning. Sgt. Dustin Wade with Floyd County Police says the plane experienced an engine failure and wasn’t going to be able to make it safely back to Rome’s Russell Field, so he landed the plane on the highway. Crews are still on scene as of 1 p.m. to transport the plane.

“The plane is off the shoulder of the roadway. There were no injuries and no damage at all to the plane. It was really smooth and perfect landing for the pilot,” says Wade.

The Cessna 170 plane had taken off from the Cartersville to do some flying around Northwest Georgia and was enroute back to Cartersville when the problem arose. The pilot, of Kennesaw, Georgia, had one passenger on board.

The plane is being towed back to the Rome airport for repair.
