Spectacular emergency landing in the USA!
According to several media reports, pilot Landon Lucas (18) touched down with his small plane on an expressway in the state of New Jersey.
No one was injured in the incident around 12.30 p.m. on Monday (local time), the police confirmed. Lucas reported engine problems and tried to fly to the nearby airport in Ocean City.
Eventually it landed “unorthodox but smoothly” on a freeway bridge connecting Ocean City and Somers Point. There he had discovered a gap in the traffic. “It was pretty scary,” said an eyewitness to the broadcaster 6 ABC.
