Novice Pilot Lands Plane on Busy Highway

While flying with his father-in-law over the Great Smoky Mountains in North Carolina, Vincent Fraser was caught by surprise when the plane's only engine suddenly failed.

Fraser, who only got his pilot's license last October and had clocked under 100 hours in the air, turned to his father-in-law and apologized for putting him in this position, and told him he loved him. Together, they scouted the best possible place to land, and Fraser was miraculously able to dodge power lines and traffic to land on a highway without hitting a single vehicle.

Remarkably, they even managed to film the entire event. Here's the edited one minute video released by Inside Edition.
