A small plane made an emergency landing on Kalifornsky Beach Road Sunday and took off Monday without anyone in the plane or on the ground injured.
Eyewitnesses said traffic was stopped both ways on K-beach Road before the plane took off in the afternoon.
Trooper spokesperson Megan Peters said a single-engine plane known as a “T-craft” landed on the road between 4 and 5 p.m. Sunday due to engine failure. Peters said because nobody was arrested or injured troopers didn’t investigate where the plane was coming from or landing.
“Essentially it had an emergency landing and then was able to get out of the road and into a parking lot,” she said.
The plane was parked outside Cook Inlet Academy overnight and watched by Alaska State Troopers and Soldotna Police.
