plane landing (JPG)Aircraft Emergency Landing: 

On Monday October 30, 2023 at approximately 8:18 a.m. a Cary Police Officer was on patrol in the area of Cary-Algonquin Rd. and Fox Trails Dr. when they saw a small aircraft flying at a low altitude.  The officer saw the propeller of the single engine plane had stopped rotating, and realized the aircraft was planning to make an emergency landing on Cary-Algonquin Rd. 

The single engine plane, occupied by a 26 year old female flight instructor and a 21 year old female flight student, successfully landed on Cary-Algonquin Rd. without incident.  There were no injuries or property damage caused by this incident. 

The single engine plane left from DuPage Airport and planned to land at the Lake in the Hills Airport, but experienced engine failure shortly before executing the emergency landing on Cary-Algonquin Rd.  Traffic was diverted around the location for approximately 90 minutes until the plane was removed from the roadway. 

The FAA and NTSB were notified of the incident and will conduct further investigation they deem appropriate.
