The pilot of a small place was forced to make an emergency landing on a busy road after the plane lost power.
The plane landed on a busy road in California's Huntington Beach shortly after takeoff.
No one was hurt during the incident and no damage was caused to the plane or property. The landing has been caught by the dash cam of one Chris Young's car, who was driving to work on Friday.
"I looked up and saw the her literally through my sunroof," he told KCAL9.
"I was kind of holding traffic back for the plane because I knew it was going down right there. When I saw the plane I think initially I looked at it and I didn't believe it," Young said.
Young said he and a cyclist made their way to the single engine Cessna Skyhawk seconds after it landed.
"He tapped on the window and gave a thumbs up and she gave a thumbs up back," Young told KCAL9.
