Jan. 28, 2008, Montreal – No injuries are reported after a small airplane from a
flying school made an emergency landing on a highway outside of
Quebec City.

Quebec provincial police say the airplane landed after losing
power during the flight just before noon Saturday.

They say the Cessna was forced to avoid a vehicle on the highway
during the landing.

It then skidded across the pavement, hit a snow bank and flipped
onto its roof.
