Small Plane Crash-Lands in Connecticut

The pilot of a single-engine plane escaped injury after making an emergency landing Saturday on a new busway in West Hartford, authorities said.

The pilot was trying to land at Hartford-Brainard Airport when the aircraft apparently lost engine power. The pilot was the only person on the plane.

The plane landed at about 3:15 p.m. on the CTFastrak busway on New Park Avenue. The Federal Aviation Administration will investigate.

The 9.4 mile bus-only corridor between Hartford and New Britain is scheduled to begin operations March 28.
