It's not something you see everyday- a plane making an emergency landing on a highway in Florida. The pilot was flying with a customer who was considering buying the vintage plane when it suddenly lost power. (SOUNDBITE) (English) PILOT, CURTIS BOULWARE, SAYING: "As we descended from 5,000 feet getting closer and closer to Spruce Creek I made the judgment --- and I knew that we weren't gonna make the runway --- So instead of continuing on to Spruce Creek and ending up in the woods or in the trees, where we probably wouldn't make it, we made a turn and decided to put it on State Road 415 because that was the best choice." The plane eventually took off again from the highway. Its not clear whether the customer decided to purchase the plane.
