PEOSTA (KWWL) - A small plane made an emergency landing Saturday morning on a rural Peosta road.

Our coverage partners at the Dubuque Telegraph Herald say the plane was traveling from California to Illinois when the pilot saw smoke in the cockpit.

The pilot then shut off the avionics equipment, giving notice to the Dubuque Regional Airport to let emergency crews know they had lost contact with the plane.

According to The Telegraph Herald, the pilot landed safely along Cox Springs Rd. The pilot was not hurt, and was the only occupant.

The Telegraph Herald reported most emergency vehicles had left the scene by roughly 10 a.m. Saturday.
