Plane From Connecticut Goes Off Runway In Indiana

ZIONSVILLE, Ind. (CBS Connecticut and AP) — Authorities say no one was injured when a small plane that had flown from Connecticut slid off a runway at an Indianapolis-area airport.

The plane landed Tuesday night at Indianapolis Executive Airport near Zionsville in Boone County. It had flown from Groton-New London Airport.

The pilot told authorities that a brake on the plane locked up during the landing, causing it to slide off the runway.

The Indianapolis Star reports the plane belonged to Farrell 5 LLC of Defiance, Ohio, and had seven passengers and two crew members aboard.

The Federal Aviation Administration is expected to investigate.
