A light plane landed on I-575 southbound south of Barrett Parkway on Sunday afternoon, according to authorities.
Cobb County police told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the plane was on a final approach to McCollum Field around 1:15 p.m. when it lost power.
Three men were on board on a return trip to McCollum from Nashville, Tenn., said Cobb police spokesman Michael Bowman. The plane was cleared for final approach and landing when the pilot said he lost hydraulics, according to Bowman. The pilot switched fuel tanks, but that didn’t help. The pilot saw a break in the traffic and landed the plane on the interstate. There were no injuries, according to Bowman.
The pilot and his passengers declined to comment on the incident.
