Small Plane Makes Emergency Landing On Hwy. 407

KAWARTHA LAKES-Drivers on Highway 407 got a big surprise this morning as a small plane landed on the roadway alongside them.

The plane took from Buttonville Municipal Airport in Markham at approximately 11am according to police. But a few minutes after takeoff, it began experiencing mechanical issues and was forced to land on a 10-lane stretch of Highway 407 near Woodbine Avenue.

No one was injured and police say no charges will be laid. The plane had a pilot and an instructor on board. Quite the lesson.
