Uhh, HOLY SHIT. First things first, we have to note that everyone is safe, no injuries, all that good stuff. This from CBC
Around 10:30 a.m. Thursday, the pilot of the Piper Cherokee aircraft called the Quebec City fire department asking for permission to land on the highway just a few kilometres south of the Jean-Lesage International Airport.
Fire department spokesperson Bill Noonan said the plane had already landed safely when emergency crews arrived on site. The pilot was not injured.
But back to the video - this is fucking terrifying. We're already dealing with a pandemic, I don't want to deal with planes fucking emergency landing on the highway the one time I drive to go pick up some takeout. I can't imagine just sitting there cruising along, listening to a podcast (subscribe to any Barstool one - just pick one or two or 100) and having to slam on my brakes because of a fucking plane landing.
I don't care if this is a small plane with just a pilot, I'm glad I'm not flying anytime soon. Don't need this image in my head as I wait in line for group 6 to be called. I'm not even scared of flying, it's just something I don't need to be watching right before a flight is all I'm saying.
I know it's not heavy traffic - but there is still some decent traffic here. It's a miracle that this didn't lead to a crash between cars. That might be the most ridiculous thing of this all. How there was no more damage or any injuries is wild.
Also what are these cars doing riding the planes ass? Laugh out loud image at them just tailgating a fucking plane. I don't know, maybe slam on your brakes and get the fuck out of the way. That would be my gameplan here. That or get into the left lane and fly by as fast as possible, but I'm not getting close to a plane on a highway.
PS: A small plane had to make an emergency landing on I-75 here in Cincinnati this morning too. What the fuck is going on today?
