A plane made a near-perfect emergency landing in the eastbound lanes of I-470 just past Douglas Street in Missouri on Tuesday afternoon.

The pilot wasn't injured, nor were any drivers, and there was no apparent damage to any of the cars and trucks on the interstate.

Numerous people driving on the freeway at the time captured the landing and the aftermath.

The Missouri Highway Patrol said via Twitter that the pilot was making his final approach to land at the Lee’s Summit airport when he experienced sudden engine failure in one of two engines.

The plane was taken off the interstate around 3:30pm Tuesday.
