Small plane lands on Delaware road

DOVER, Del. (AP) — Delaware State Police say a small U.S. Air Force plane made an emergency landing in a field near Dover Air Force Base, crashed through a fence and taxied onto a road clogged with rush-hour traffic. There were no injuries.

Troopers say the plane, identified by DAFB officials as an Aero Club Cessna, landed late Monday afternoon in a field southwest of the approach lights to the runway.

Authorities say the plane went through a fence at a business and onto Bay Road, where it stopped in the center median.

The plane did not hit any cars, but one car hit a guardrail to avoid it. No one was hurt

The 54-year-old instructor pilot and 44-year-old pilot were the only people on the plane.
