Plane makes emergency landing on highway near Hinton

HIGHWAY – Earlier Friday afternoon, a plane flying to Edmonton from B.C. had to make an emergency landing on Robb Road, about 11 km south of Hinton.

At 3:42 p.m., Hinton RCMP responded to a 911 call of a plane blocking traffic on the roadway.  The plane suffered a mechanical issue and the pilot was forced to make an emergency landing.  The plane clipped a fifth wheel while it was landing, but no one was injured.

The plane has been towed off the road with the assistance of a passerby who happened upon the scene.  The RCMP have contacted the Transportation Safety Board to conduct any follow up investigation.
