  • Video Plane lands on busy US highway

The wild scene was caught on the dashboard camera of stunned State Trooper Clint Thompson, who made a quick U-turn and followed the airplane as it careened down State Route 7 at 8:15 PST as motorists swerved out of the way.

Trooper Thompson says he had to think quickly. He said he turned on his emergency lights and tried to slow traffic down around him.

A small plane landed on a street in the Parkland-Spanaway area of Pierce County Thursday morning after it reportedly ran out of gas.

Something Trooper Thompson has never seen on the job. "It could've been really bad".

According to The New York Post, Acklam was forced to make an emergency landing on a busy Washington State highway. He helped clear drivers off Pacific Avenue so the plane could land. "When he went by me, I could've reached out and touched the tip of his wing. That's how close I was to that plane".

Trooper Johnna Batiste says the pilot was able to land during a break in traffic after a fuel system malfunction caused the plane to stall.

That's what happened to pilot David Acklam, a systems engineer at Boeing, in his KR2 aircraft.

The plane was later loaded up onto a truck's flat bed and taken away. Acklam thanked the trooper for his actions Thursday.

No one was hurt in the incident, OregonLive.com reported.

Thompson, realizing what the aircraft is about to do, used his patrol auto to block the road and clear the way for the landing, CNN reports.
