Plane makes emergency landing on Alabama interstate (video)

A small plane joined holiday travelers on an interstate in Alabama this weekend.

Cell phone video caught the plane landing on I-20 narrowly missing several cars.

The pilot, Jim Williams, told the NBC that the engine failed. Williams is an experienced flight instructor and he had a student on board.

Williams said he was out of options and couldn’t make it to nearby Talladega Airport.

“On an interstate, you’re landing with the traffic rather than against the traffic,” Williams said. “[It’s] probably everything I had taught students for the last 36 years in picking out a place for an emergency landing. Everything seemed to work out good.”

No one got hurt.
