A Civil Air Patrol plane made an emergency landing on U.S. Highway 395 north of Pasco Friday night, according to the Associated Press, citing an official from the Federal Aviation Administration.
The pilot and passenger were not injured. FAA spokesman Allen Kenitzer said in an email that the pilot of the Cessna 182 declared an emergency due to engine failure.
The plane managed to avoid traffic when it touched down around 9 p.m. near milepost 40. It was partially blocking the roadway for a few hours while the Air Patrol responded to remove it, though traffic was able to go around it, said Josh Keightley, State Patrol communications supervisor.
The plane suffered minor damage to its landing gear. The Washington State Patrol identified the pilot as 63-year-old John Townsley of Spokane. The patrol said the plane was flying from Richland to Spokane.
