    A single-engine airplane made an emergency landing Friday morning, the FAA said.

    The Federal Aviation Administration says it will investigate a small plane's emergency landing Friday in a field near Southwest Ranches.

    No injuries were reported after the landing, which happened about 10:30 a.m. near Griffin and Hancock roads. Two people were aboard the aircraft, according to Jim Peters, with the FAA.

    The aircraft is a SeaRey single-engine plane based in Pembroke Pines, and its registered owner is Captain Services of Fort Lauderdale LLC, registration records show. 

    The plane, intact after the landing, was reportedly forced to land because of an engine-related problem, Peters said.
