Moment of Impact When WWII-Style Plane Crashed on 101 Freeway

By now you've all seen, heard about or were impacted by that wild plane crash that happened on the 101 freeway in Los Angeles...

But, while photos and videos of the incident's aftermath have circulated, we are just now getting a glimpse at the actual landing of the vintage plane.

Caught by a passerby, the WWII era plane is seen flying extremely low before making a bouncy landing on the freeway.

Fortunately no one was hurt.

But! The subsequent crash and flames caused a several hours long traffic back up that had a lot of people pissed.

ABC7 news was able to speak to the pilot later about what happened:

The pilot told Eyewitness News that he had experienced engine failure."I picked a spot on the freeway where I knew there was a big section of cars that weren't there," said the pilot, who identified himself as Rob. "The engine completely failed. I was able to fortunately not hurt anybody, other than the airplane."
