Plane makes emergency landing in Frederick Co.
A Montgomery County traffic management airplane made an emergency landing in Frederick County on Tuesday after its engine failed in high winds, authorities said.
The pilot suffered minor facial injuries in the landing at Monocacy National Battlefield, and a passenger suffered a cut hand, a Montgomery County police spokeswoman said.
Police said the pilot was unable to reach the plane’s base at Gaithersburg air park because of the wind. She next tried to reach an airport in Frederick County but that proved impossible when the engine halted.
The plane went into a ditch and flipped over during the landing, officials said. Additional details were not available.
