Plane On Highway

FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) -- An emergency landing on a highway by a World War II-era plane caused quite a stir in Wisconsin, where traffic was snarled until authorities were able to move the aircraft.

Authorities say no one was injured after the plane landed on U-S Highway 41 near Fond du Lac County Airport shortly before 8 o'clock last night.

The highway was closed in both directions as authorities worked to move the plane from the highway, but vehicles were eventually able to pass on the shoulder.

The Oshkosh Northwestern newspaper reports that a man and his son were flying the plane to an air show in Oshkosh.
