A plane has crash landed in Kamengo Sub County in Mpigi district, barely six months after a US aircraft made an emergency landing in Mityana district. The 6-seater tourist viper plane was flying from Mweya to Kajansi on Thursday morning when the incident happened.
According to the Equator Regional Police Spokesperson Philip Mukasa, the plane was being flown by a Spanish National.
It had no passengers. The pilot escaped with no injuries and is safe.
Mr Mukasa says security has been beefed up to guard this area.
However, the incident has left residents excited and amazed, with scores flocking the scene to have a look at the plane.
The cause of the crash is yet to be established.
In July this year, an aircraft carrying US troops made an emergency landing at Kiwawu village on Mityana Road after it ran out of fuel in flight.
The CA212 plane belonged to the US army and was carrying eight American soldiers. Nobody was injured.
In August 2009, a six-seater plane, belonging to the Kampala Aero Club Flight Training Centre, made an emergency landing in the middle of the road at Kyabaddaza on Masaka highway, about 40km west of Kampala.
Vehicles were forced to duck into the nearby bushes as the plane staggered in the middle of the tarmac; its wings spread across the road, towards a school compound. Nobody was injured.
