A teenage pilot made an emergency landing on a New Jersey bridge Monday after the aircraft experienced an engine malfunction.
Landon Lucas, 18, was flying a banner plane over the New Jersey shoreline when he realized the airbox of his plane was dangling off the spring, preventing a proper flow of fuel on his aircraft.
The Federal Aviation Administration confirmed that Lucas was able to land his plane on a bridge on the Route 52 highway near Ocean City, New Jersey.
Lucas, who was the sole person on the plane, said he did not suffer any injuries. “There was not a scratch, just traffic,” he said.
