Pilot Makes Emergency Landing After Airplane Propeller Falls Off

Oh wait. What? You just saw your propeller fall off? And now you’re looking for a safe place to land in the middle of no where?

Gizmodo reports this is just what pilots of a Cessna 172B in Mexico had to do when the propeller of the plane dropped off (see video below):

Before the first cut the plane is good, with the propeller still on. The next one, it’s off, but the engine is still running to keep power in the plane. Then you can hear pilot — steel nerves, not a single sign of nervousness — and co-pilot discussing where to land, looking for a place — “there are some trees” the pilot comments calmly at one point — until they spot the road in which he finally performs a perfect emergency landing
