CALGARY - A small plane carrying six people made an emergency landing on a Calgary street on Wednesday morning.

Police say the twin-engine plane was coming in from the south, heading for a landing at the Calgary airport, when a pilot radioed in that the aircraft was low on fuel.

Sgt. Duane Lepchuk said the aircraft came down shortly before 6 a.m. on a two-lane stretch of 36th Street, about five kilometres south of the airport and not far from the Trans-Canada Highway.

There were no injuries among the four passengers and two crew members.

Lepchuk said there was minimal traffic on the street at the time and no reports of drivers having to swerve to miss the plane.

United Flight Rerouted After Airline Realizes Mid-Flight They Put a Dog On the Wrong Plane

  United Flight Rerouted After Airline Realizes Mid-Flight They Put a Dog On the Wrong Plane United Airlines is in the middle of another dog drama, after loading a dog on the wrong plane again. This is the third strike against the airline in one week when it comes to handling passengers’ pets. On Tuesday, news broke of Kokito’s death. The black French bulldog died on an United flight from Houston to New York City after a flight attendant insisted that the owner of the dog, Catalina Robeldo, stow the dog’s carrier, with the canine inside, in an overhead bin for the entirety of the flight. The following day animal lovers learned the airline confused two dogs, a great Dane and a German Shepherd, and erroneously sent one of the pets to Japan when he was supposed to take a much shorter trip to Kansas City. The most recent incident also involves United putting a pet on the wrong plane. According to Today.com, a dog leaving from New Jersey’s Newark airport on Thursday destined for Akron, Ohio, via United was accidentally loaded onto a United plane heading to St. Louis, Missouri. When the airline realized their mistake mid-flight, the plane was re-routed to fix the error. This decision delayed the arrival of the plane, and all of its passengers, to St. Louis, reports Today.com. RELATED: Everything You Need to Know About Traveling on a Plane with Your Dog United Airlines spokesperson Natalie Noonan provided PEOPLE with the following statement about the incident. “United Express flight 3996 from Newark to St. Louis diverted to Akron to drop off a pet that had been loaded onto this flight mistakenly. The pet has been safely delivered to its owner. We provided compensation to all customers on board for the diversion.

The pilot of a small plane with six people aboard reported it was losing power shortly before she managed to veer around buildings and dodge light poles to make an "amazing" safe landing on a Calgary street .

When Jamal Hammoud got up early Wednesday morning and spotted flashing lights on 36th Street from the window of his northeast home, he thought fire trucks might be responding to a collision. But after a closer look at the road, he realized the cause of the commotion was a small airplane .

Jason Hollyoak told CTV Calgary that he saw the plane make an incredible landing.

"I would say he was just trying to keep it underneath all the light poles and street lights and everything. He had to have flown over probably two or three cars," Hollyoak said.

The plane remained on the street during the busy morning commute and police set up detours around the scene.

Super T Aviation of Medicine Hat, Alta. said in a statement that the plane was forced to land "due to a loss of power of unknown cause."

Two pilots and four passengers were on the Piper Navajo. Super T's owner, Terri Super, was heading to Calgary to help the Transportation Safety Board with its investigation.

"Ms. Super acknowledges the actions of the pilots to ensure a safe landing and is grateful that there were no injuries to those on board or on the ground," said the statement.

TSB spokesman Alexandre Fournier said two investigators from Edmonton were on their way to the scene.
