(BEDFORD) - A Champaign, Illinois couple made an emergency landing Sunday afternoon at Virgil I Grissom Airport.

"The Cessna plane developed a leak in the seal prop and was throwing oil on the windshield making it difficult to see," says Airport Manager Ray Sexton. "They did a great job of landing the plane with no problem."

Sexton says the husband and wife couple from Illinois were flying back home from North Carolina.

Shawswick Volunteer Fire Department and an IU Health Hospital ambulance were notified the plane was making an emergency landing and went to the airport in case things went wrong.

"The plane had safely landed before we arrived," said Chief Bobby Brown.
