A small plane had to make an emergency landing at Cox Springs Road, just south of U.S. 20, in Peosta, Iowa, on April 11.

The single-engine plane was heading from California to Galt Airport, Illinois when the pilot Adam Maritz noticed smoke in the cockpit and decided to make an emergency landing.

The plane landed uneventfully and the pilot, who was the only one aboard, remained unharmed.

The FAA was notified.
