More details have been released after a single-engine plane made an emergency landing Tuesday on Interstate 985 northbound in Buford.
Flight tracking website FlightAware reports the 1966 Piper PA-28-140, registered as N7470R, departed the Gwinnett County Airport in Lawrenceville at 3:23 p.m. After departing, the plane flew northwest toward the south end of Lake Lanier and eventually near the City of Cumming.
A preliminary report from the Federal Aviation Administration shows the pilot of the Piper called into the Gwinnett County Tower as they were returning inbound for runway seven at the airport. The controller advised the pilot to report a three-mile left base to runway seven.
The controller attempted to contact the pilot shortly after for a position report, but they were unable to make contact.
A police helicopter then advised the controller a few minutes later that an aircraft had landed on I-985.
Two people were inside the plane at the time of the incident. No injuries were reported.
The plane is registered to Spalding Mill Aircraft, LLC, in Norcross, according to FlightAware.
