Small Plane Lands On Highway Near Orlando After Running Out of Gas

The emergency landing occurred in Longwood at about 3:45 p.m.

A small airplane landed in the center, closed lanes of I-4 in Seminole County on Friday afternoon, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. It remained unclear if there were any passengers on board the aircraft, but authorities say no injuries were reported in the plane or on the ground.

"She's cutting in and out".

Orlando Executive cleared the plane for landing on runway 13, but moments later the pilot said the engine was done for.

The Seminole County Sheriff's Office said nobody was injured and there was no damage to the plane or any vehicles on I-4.

A short time later, the pilot contacted the tower again, saying he had to make an emergency landing. "He is one lucky bastard", a helicopter pilot near the landing scene said.

The single-engine plane could be seen in the paved median between the east and westbound lanes of I-4 near State Road 434. "He did a great job".
