When the Skydive East Coast Sky Diving School took off on a routine trip last Sunday, they probably didn't expect to produce a viral video while doing so—but that's exactly what happened after they encountered an emergency landing situation. After one of the plane's engines lost power, the pilot had to make a quick (and incredibly skillful) landing on a road median on Route 72 in Stafford, New Jersey. Five people were in the plane and no one was hurt during the impromptu landing. The amazing part is that no cars were damaged—or even touched—during the incident. See for yourself:
