Never happen on the M25 or M1/M6 here without a weeks advance notice. ;)

That's awesome! :D

Imagine it here though - people would moan and complain and say he was causing a problem, not commend him for his excellent actions in recovering from an engine failure AND then landing on a busy stretch of road. Superb flying I'd say. :thumbsup:

Good landing. They all walked away from it.

Of course, no indication as to how the engineers are going to recover the aircraft after dare-devil boy's parking :lol:

As the saying goes (and Mick used it)
Any landing you all walk away from is a good landing.

I think that was a very good, controlled landing.
Now try it with a Boeing....... ;)

A great and safe landing and all cleared within an hour, if that had been in this country the road would have to close for at least a week for health and safety reports......
