At 4:12 p.m., the small plane, a Cessna 182Q, landed on the Graniteville Road playing fields. The pilot was the only person in the plane and he was uninjured, Chelmsford police reported.
No fuel leaked onto the field, and the landing did not create an environmental impact, according to Chelmsford police. The pilot reported mechanical problems before landing.
MassPort and the FAA were notified and will investigate.
