In awe at how orderly all of this is. Everyone just calmly slows down, puts their four-ways on, merges smoothly to the left lane. You'd think there'd be more freaking out over the fact a PLANE LANDED ON THE HIGHWAY— ℳatt (@matttomic) April 16, 2020
Quebec drivers are honestly the smartest and best drivers in Canada. And pilots, apparently! Well done everyone!— Kyle (@FC_kyle) April 16, 2020
My favorite part is the car right behind the plane who turned on their hazard lights.— Hana (@Hananobira) April 16, 2020
Excellent piloting. There was an urgency to land between the overhead signs that required super fast decision making. Well done!— Matt Stone (@Stone45Matt) April 16, 2020
That pilot was as cool as a cucumber considering all the obstacles, I'd fly with him or her any day.— Nods (@nodsnwinks) April 16, 2020
