The plane landed in Cumberland and then taxied along the road for a time, before the pilot parked the Cessna 152 along the passing lane and median in Falmouth.  The pilot is Sachin Hejeji of Falmouth and he was headed from Waterville to the Portland Jetport. He was not injured and no vehicles were struck as the plane landed during rush hour traffic.
