IT’S NOT THE ideal landing – but it looks like this pilot pulled off what must have felt like a scary manoeuvre.

Stafford Township Police Department shared this video today of a plane as it landed on an overpass in New Jersey.

At about 10.13am on Sunday, police responded to reports of a small plane down.

They said that it appears the plane, which was carrying students from the Skydive East Coast Sky Diving School:

lost power forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing on the grass median between the east and west bound lanes of Route 72 . Officers at the scene closed the left lanes on Route 72 in both directions for approximately 90 minutes while the scene remained under investigation.
