Aircraft makes emergency landing on N1 highway

Motorists on the N1 highway between Winburg and Bloemfontein had to pull over this morning to make room for a light aircraft that was forced to make an emergency landing.

The pilot told paramedics who rushed to the scene motorists had made his job of landing on the highway much easier by quickly assessing the situation and pulling off to the side of the road.

He said he had five passengers onboard when the plan developed mechanical problems.

Nobody was injured, but the pilot and passengers were all treated for shock.

The highway had to be closed to traffic while the plane was removed.
