Plane Lands on Busy Highway in New Jersey

The moment when a small plane, carrying skydiving students and their instructor, made a emergency landing on a busy highway overpass was caught on video released by the Stafford Police Department in New Jersey.

The video, capturing the incident on Sunday morning, shows a single-engine plane flying above the highway just before it veers a little to the left and safely lands onto a grass median between the east- and west-bound lanes of Route 72 in Stafford Township.

An initial investigation suggested the small plane lost power, which forced the pilot to make an emergency landing. The plane was carrying students from Skydive East Coast skydiving school in nearby West Creek, New Jersey, police said, adding that one skydiving instructor was treated for a small cut on his arm, though no other injuries were reported and no vehicles were involved.
