TORONTO – A major Toronto highway was closed for more than two hours on Friday night after a small plane landed on the four-lane roadway.
A 1974 Piper plane landed on Highway 407 just before 11 p.m. on Friday. The plane landed on a section of road that parallels Toronto Buttonville Municipal Airport said Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Dave Woodford.
No one was injured during the landing, but the highway was shut down for several hours. A flatbed truck was on scene after midnight to remove the aircraft, Sgt. Woodford said.
Sgt. Woodford said he did not have any information about how many people were on board.
The aircraft bears the call number C-GOYV according to a picture taken at the scene by CTVNews and is privately registered to a numbered company based in Toronto.
The Buttonville airport is the 10th busiest in Canada and boasts the country’s largest flight school.
