It wasn't just shore traffic on Sunday that had Route 72 backed up!  A small plane had to make an emergency landing on the busy shore route!

Stafford Township Police responded to a small plane needing an emergency landing on Route 72 and Route 9 in Ocean County.

The plane carried students from the Skydive East Coast skydiving school and lost power forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing on the grass median between the eastbound and westbound lanes of Route 72.

Thankfully there were no major injuries and the FAA is currently investigation the situation.

Here's the official police video of the plane landing...
