SIGNAL HILL (CBSLA/AP) – A small plane landed safely Monday on a street near Long Beach Airport.

No injuries were reported after the aircraft landed near a park at Orange Avenue and Willow Street in the Signal Hill area, authorities said.

The plane is registered to the Long Beach Flying Club and Flight Academy, according to the Associated Press.

The FAA will investigate.
