The dashcam of an officer in Washington state captured the moments when the pilot of a small plane made an emergency landing onto a busy highway south of Seattle. The jet is seen buzzing dangerously close to commuters before coming to a stop at a red light.

It's good he got it down safe.  Small nit, I don't see any jets on this plane.

That is one hot touchdown.  Folks if you ever have to do this keep wits about you and remember an off airport landing is just like an on airport.  Proper speed, flaps, flare, touchdown, rollout.  Plenty of width in this case to avoid anything on the side of the road.  I get that he had to time it to try to avoid the other traffic.
