"The plane landed near 3800 South Lake Shore Drive a little after 3:15 p.m. Just before 6 p.m., officials shut down southbound Lake Shore Drive to allow the plane to be removed.

The man piloting the small plane landed it on the side of the southbound drive after it started experiencing some sort of mechanical problem, and neither he nor his female passenger was injured, said Larry Merritt, a spokesman for the Chicago Fire Department.

The pilot of “an Ercoupe 415-D aircraft, which is a fixed wing, single-engine aircraft, reported an emergency to air traffic control and landed on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago,” said Elizabeth Isham Cory, a spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration’s Chicago office, in an email. “The point of departure and intended destination are still being determined.”

The two were in the plane when it began to lose power and the pilot was directed by air traffic control to land on Lake Shore, according to a police media notification.'
