Winter weather can make travel a harrowing experience, as was the case for a pilot flying a small charter plane in snowy conditions in Indiana.
The pilot attempted to land the small aircraft, carrying three people, at the Richmond Municipal Airport, but somehow slid off the runway, through an airport field and stopped in the middle of Highway 227.
Photos of the incident show the plane sitting on the edge of the road with the left wing blocking one lane of traffic and the nose pushing into the fence.
No injuries were reported, airport manager Rodney Mayse told the Richmond Palladium-Item.
The plane was removed from the highway and the FAA is investigating the crash.
