HARFORD COUNTY, MD — A small aircraft went down near the Aldino airport Friday morning after the pilot made an emergency landing, according to officials. Nobody was injured.
The aircraft was located in a field in the 3700 block of Aldino Road at 8:42 a.m. on Friday, April 12, according to Jenn Chenworth, spokeswoman for the Harford County Volunteer Fire and EMS Association.
Upon taking off from the Harford County Airport — which is nearby in the 3500 block of Aldino Road — the plane experienced an engine failure, officials said, so the pilot forced an emergency landing.
The Level Volunteer Fire Company was called to the scene and was clearing the incident around 9 a.m., Chenworth said. According to authorities, there was minor damage to the plane.
