What looked like a scene from an action movie unfolded in New Jersey on Thursday. A Cessna C150, a single engine fixed-wing plane, made an emergency landing on Thursday afternoon on Route 23 in West Milford, NJ, and amazingly no one was injured.
According to sources the plane flew out of Orange County, NJ and was piloted by a Doctor from the area who wishes to remain anonymous. Shortly after the plane took off it experienced a power failure. The pilot released 10 miles out that the plane had lost power. He thought quickly and placed the plane on glide while looking for a place to land. It is believed the doctor, who wished to only be identified as Christopher is the owner of the plane.
The pilot spotted route 23, a busily traveled access road in West Milford, New Jersey and landed the plane, coming within inches of an 18 wheeler that was being driven by a student driver. According to reports from witnesses like Haidar Barbouti, the pilot allegedly landed the plane, the pulled it off to the side, narrowly missing a Volkswagen and the 18-wheeler.
Traffic stopped and the police were called.
