There was an unusual sight on the Glenn Highway as a small plane landed near the Eklutna exit around 8 p.m. Friday. 

There were three people on board the Maule M-4 including the pilot, according to one of the passengers. The passenger said the group took off from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson and was planning to go up the Knik Arm when the plane's engine failed. 

The pilot landed on the inbound side of the Glenn Highway. Anchorage police were on scene and said there were no injuries. 

The pilot planned to take the plane apart in order to move it off the highway.
