Aircraft lands safely on I-580 in San Leandro with 2 on board




A private Cessna passenger plane, with two on board, made an emergency landing on Saturday night on Interstate 580 in San Leandro, stunning riders but no injuries, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The single-engine plane apparently had a mechanical problem and had to land at 6:45 pm east of the 1

64th Avenue exit, said Officer Herman Baza

The pilot and passenger, en route from Lake Tahoe to Hayward Executive Airport, left from the plane, according to the fire department of Alameda County. The plane and the highway had not been damaged, officials said.


According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the aircraft, a 1984 Cessna 172, was registered at Fly Fe LLC in Reno.

Two lanes were blocked on the highway as officials investigated the incident, Baza said.


"You do not see that often," he added.
