Illinois highway doubles as a runway for a private airplane.

I've flown on airplanes that get so low to the ground during landing that it seems like they are going to land on the road by the airport.

In this case, a plane in Illinois did use the highway as a landing strip.

According to,

"The Pulaski County Sheriff's Department tells us that single-engine plane, landed at mile marker 5 southbound, on I-57."

The Cesena was heading towards Cairo Regional Airport when it lost power.

The pilot was able to safely land on a nearby highway.

Luckily, the only problem was the traffic back-up.
