On Wednes­day, the pilot of this Cess­na 206 made a per­fect emer­gency land­ing on a high­way in New York. The white-knuck­le land­ing hap­pened on the Sun­rise High­way in Yaphank, Long Island.

The sin­gle-engine plane depart­ed from Bookhaven Air­port and was trav­el­ing to Eagles Nest Air­port in West Creek, New York. Dur­ing the flight, some­thing went wrong and the pilot was forced to land the plane before they could get to an air­port. The air­plane was able to make an incred­i­ble land­ing on the high­way with cars on the road. An added dan­ger was that there were signs and an over­pass above the road that put pres­sure on the pilot to put down the plane quick­ly or face a poten­tial­ly dead­ly end­ing.
