(AP) -- Authorities say the pilot of a single-engine plane escaped injury after making an emergency landing on a new busway in Connecticut.
Reports say that 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. Saturday on the CTFastrak busway on New Park Avenue in West Hartford. 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.
Officials say the plane was carrying 30 gallons of fuel and officials from the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection were headed to the scene.
