DAY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- Montcalm County Sheriff's deputies closed a stretch of M-66 Friday morning to allow a small plane to take off from the highway.
The crop duster had to make an emergency landing April 7 due to engine troubles. The plane had been parked a nearby apple orchard while engine repairs were made.
Around 10:00 a.m. Friday, authorities closed M-66 between Lake Montcalm Road and Cannonsville Road so the small plane could take off. The pilot was able to make a successful take off and the road reopened.
The crop duster is owned by Heritage AG Aerial Application in Lakeview.
