Plane makes emergency landing on Queensland road

A small single-engined plane made an emergency landing on a narrow road safely with no serious injuries to anyone aboard or on the ground, emergency services said.

The aircraft, from Cessna 20x series, set down around 10 am on the narrow Stanwell-Waroula Road, about 23km from Rockhampton, a coastal town in Queensland.

Queensland Ambulance Service said neither of the two people on board was injured.

It wasn’t immediately clear what kind of engine problems the plane experienced.

The highway was closed and emergency personnel were on the scene.

7 News journalist Tom Hartley tweeted pilots Sarah and Fred Hughes were flying to the Beef Australia 2015 Exhibition.
