WATCH Plane Makes Emergency Landing on Freeway Near Los Angeles
A small plane landed safely on a California freeway after the engine failed and the pilot couldn't restart it Sunday evening.
The landing happened around 7:30 p.m. after the pilot of a Beech G33 aircraft bound for John Wayne Airport reported the trouble.
Slod and the plane's only other passenger, Daniel Gross, explained they were flying to Van Nuys from San Diego when they lost power in the plane.
"You don't have a choice".
Slod explained he was originally aiming for a nearby beach, but was eventually forced to descend on the 55 Freeway in Costa Mesa.
According to KTLA, Izzy chose to land on the freeway since strong winds prevented him from getting his small plane to John Wayne International Airport.
"I saw an opening on the highway and I went for it right away", the pilot told KTLA.
"We always try to make great records ... and I guess this is a testament to that", Stapleton said.
It was then that Slod had to think fast and reached out to air traffic control to let them know that he'd be landing a 1971 Beechcraft Bonanza on the 55 Freeway.
"Slod attributes the safe landing to "a lot of luck", adding: "[I'm] not a big believer but [it was] definitely a miracle".
Still, he took a chance and dodged traffic before landing in the number five lane near the Del Mar exit, according to California Highway Patrol officials. It was unclear how many people were on the plane, but no one onboard was injured, authorities said.
