World War II Plane Makes Emergency Landing On Wisconsin Highway
July 23, 2007
Fond du Lac, Wisconsin (AHN) -- A World War II-era plane made an emergency landing on a Wisconsin highway on Sunday.
Engine problems caused the 1946 North American T-6G plane to touchdown on U.S. Highway 41 near Fond du Lac Airport, the Associated Press reported.
"A person called and said that there was smoke as the plane came down," said Andy Dothone, a state patrol dispatcher.
The highway was closed in both directions as authorities worked to move the plane from the highway.
William J. Leff of Dayton, Ohio was flying with his son to the Experimental Aircraft Association's AirVenture show in Oshkosh.
No injuries were reported, but the right wing of the plane suffered damage as it took out highway signs during its unscheduled stop.
