Johannesburg - Commuters on the N1 highway between Winburg and Bloemfontein were surprised to see an aircraft preparing to land on the road in front of them on Sunday morning.

ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak said the Piper aircraft made an emergency landing on the highway at about 11:30 after experiencing technical difficulty.

Eye-witnesses explained how they immediately started to slow down and some even pulled over as soon as they saw the plane...

Hope he didn't get a speeding ticket or parking ticket! :D
