Light aircraft landing on an interstate road

So what do we all think of this Piper landing on an interstate in America. Seems a good outcome although the SUV driver probably doesn’t agree!

Link to 14 second clip:

Hopefully the link works. All are ok ( 2 in piper and 1 in SUV).

My flying in the south of England means there is often a field nearby should the worst happen, but I’ll admit to flying over the M27 wondering if it would be possible if the prop stopped spinning.

Is it not a Bellanca Viking?

Yes, it’s a Viking. They drop like a rock power-off.

Beautifully done, particularly at night.

He did that very well. Straight down; no messing about.

Wow that looks impeccable to me for a night landing, the front driver was probably wondering what the heck he was doing on a runway

I circled the whole M25 once at night, it looked with plenty of option, I circle it by day at 500ft agl you will barely fit in 400m without hitting something

Pilot is an accomplished acro pilot. Maybe those skills paid off here.
Reminds me to continue my acro training…
