PETAL, MS (WDAM) - A plane that had to make an emergency landing in Jones County Monday successfully took flight off a major highway in near Friday morning.

The cause for the emergency landing is unknown at this time.

The plane could not be towed to the Hattiesburg-Laurel airport, so the pilot had to use the Evelyn Gandy Parkway as a launching pad.

Where the plane is heading has not been reported.
