ANNE ARUNDEL, Md. (WMAR) - A father and his two sons were involved in a small plane emergency landing Friday afternoon.
Maryland State Police say the plane, piloted by Chris Curry, 32 of Odenton, took off from Tipton Airfield in Fort Meade when the pilot of the aircraft had to make an emergency landing due to loss of rotational power on the engine.
Curry told police he noticed smoke coming from the engine compartment.
The pilot was able to make a landing, hitting just a guardrail and a light pole on an exit ramp near I-97 southbound. Officials say the plane was on its way to land at Lee Airport in Anne Arundel County.
