Small Plane Uses Highway As Air Strip To Land, Take Off In Weston


EMERGENCY LANDING ON U.S. 27 IS BACK IN BUSINESS. TURNING THE HIGHWAY INTO A RUN WAY. THREE PEOPLE WERE ONBOARD. WE WILL SPEAK TO THE MAN WHO SAW IT ALL. WE ARE IN WEST BROWER WITH OUR TOP STORY. Reporter: AFTER-HOURS WORKING ON A SINGLE ENGINE PLANE PULLED OVER ON THE SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY A MECHANIC FINALLY GOT THE PLANE RUNNING AGAIN. THE POLICE ASSISTED SO THE PLANE COULD LAND SAFETY. THE FRIENDS LEFT TO FLY TO THE KEY WEST. HO MINUTES INTO THE FLIGHT SOME THING WENT WRONG WITH THE ENGINE JUST SOUTH OF I-95. HE SAID YOU PRACTICE SIMILAR IS A YOUR NO — SCENARIOS IN PIOLET TRAINING BUT THOSE INSTINCTS QUICKLY KICK KICK IN. Reporter: WE SPOKE WITH A MAN RIDING HIS MOTORCYCLE WHO NOTICED HIS PLAIN FLYING VERY LOW. THE ENGINE AND PROPELLERS WEREN’T RUNNING. I ACTUALLY SAW THE PLANE PULLOVER OUT OF THE MAIN ROAD. IT LOOKS LIKE IT WAS EXECUTED PERFECTLY. Reporter: HE WAITED PATIENTLY WITH FEDERAL AVIATIONS AND MECHANICS TO LOOK AT THE PROBLEM. WELL, YOU KNOW, I’VE SEEN IT ON TV AND HERE IT’S HAPPYING IN REAL LIFE FOR ME. IT WAS QUITE A SHOCK. I THOUGHT ABOUT IT ALL DAY. Reporter: NO ONE KNOWS WHAT EXACTLY WENT WRONG WITH THE PLANE AND ENGINE.
