Plane lands on Interstate 495 in Mansfield Massachusetts
The pilot of a Piper Cherokee who made an emergency landing on southbound Interstate 495 near Mansfield, Massachusetts, Tuesday, September 1, 2009 had been practicing stalls and couldn't get the plane's engine to restart. The Piper Cherokee's nose gear wheels feel off and gasoline spilled all over the highway. The pilot of the Piper Cherokee, Matthew Kleindienst, 24, and the passenger Brian K. Souza, 21, landed at 10:57 A.M. on Interstate 495. There were two people in the plan and the Massachusetts State Police said there were no reports of injures. But the traffic was backed up for miles.
