The plane was identified by the Federal Aviation Administration as a Ercoupe 415-D aircraft. It’s a fixed wing, single-engine aircraft.

The point of departure and intended destination are not yet determined, the FAA said, though radio traffic heard by NBC 5 suggests the plane was being directed to Midway Airport during a mayday call for partial engine failure.
