A plane was forced to make an emergency landing on Highway 407 in Markham early Wednesday morning, York Regional Police say.
Emergency services were called to the scene just after 10:45 a.m.
Police said a small plane landed on the eastbound lanes, just east of the Woodbine off-ramp.
The plane had originally taken off from Buttonville Airport and police said it experienced mechanical failure a few minutes into the flight.
“Good foresight in respect to the pilots involved to be able to find a safe location to put the airplane down. Did that with no damage to the airplane,” said Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Kerry Schmidt.
A pilot and instructor were on board at the time. Neither were injured.
There were no other reported injuries.
