SWAIN COUNTY, N.C. (FOX Carolina) - A heart-stopping emergency plane landing on a highway in Swain County was caught on camera and the video is going viral.
The Swain County Sheriff’s Office said the pilot’s GoPro recorded the incident Sunday on Highway 74.
No one was hurt in the landing, but the video shows the pilot narrowly avoiding power lines and cars on the highway.
