Video of Awesome Airplane Emergency Landing on Highway – With Cars Tailgating

Written by Charlie

A pilot made a skillful emergency landing on a highway yesterday – especially with the cars around “tailgating” it as it landed! But, it appears that all ended well!

Yesterday, there was a pretty great emergency landing by a private airplane. It was done incredibly smoothly and it appeared that no problems in the traffic.

Emergency Airplane Landing Gets Cars Tailgating It

The funny part was the reaction by motorists. The pilot skillfully landed in between moving vehicles yet some of the vehicles just kept pretty close, tailgating, in fact. And, as if it was the more normal thing ever to see a plane land, vehicles behind the landing just put their 4-way lights on and kept on going. 🙂

This happened on Highway 40 in Quebec yesterday morning around 10AM. Pretty crazy but great job by the pilot!
