It wasn’t funny on Sunday when a confused pilot landed his plane on southbound State Route 64 instead of the Grand Canyon Airport, to where it was later towed.
Officials said the pilot was simply confused. “The plane did not crash, simply landed on the highway. We now know this was not an emergency landing, simply a confused pilot who thought the highway was part of the airport.”
The small plane blocked both lanes of the highway after its 2:40 p.m. landing near mile post 232 until authorities towed it into Grand Canyon Airport.
“There were no injuries or damage done,” authorities told the media.
