Maryland State Police say a small aircraft made an emergency landing in Annapolis, Maryland Friday afternoon.
Approximately 3 p.m., a white Socata TB200 aircraft occupied by the pilot, 32-year-old Christopher Curry, and his two sons landed on the ramp from MD E/B Route 50 to MD Route 665, according to the report.
The aircraft registered to Tipton Tampico LLC sustained minor damage, but no injuries were reported.
The preliminary investigation revealed that the aircraft began exhibiting mechanical issues upon returning to Tipton Airfield in Fort Mead. Curry observed smoke coming from the engine compartment and the aircraft was losing RPMs.
When troopers arrived at the scene, the aircraft was on its wheels resting against a guardrail. During the landing, the aircraft also struck a light police.
The investigation is ongoing.
