WATCH: Airplane forced to make an emergency landing on a busy highway
A pretty freaky sight.
An single-propeller airplane was forced to make an emergency landing on a busy American highway after its engine stalled.
Dash-cam footage, recorded by a Washington State trooper who had been driving on the road, captures the moment when the plane glides by at an extremely low-level and lands on the tarmac.
The on-duty trooper swung a quick U-turn and put his lights on, slowing traffic and facilitating the landing.
The incident occurred early in the morning, with the dash-cam showing a time of 8.17am.
The video below shows the incident in full, and even shows the pilot hopping out of the cockpit at the end.
