A US pilot has credited God for enabling him to safely land a small plane on a Michigan highway after experiencing engine trouble.

Flight instructor Steven Chanter was in the air with a student pilot when the plane's engine began to fail and the oil pressure dropped.

Chanter told WOOD-TV that he took over flying and had little time to decide where to land the plane as he didn't think they would make it to a nearby airport in the village Sparta.


He managed to fly the plane under traffic lights at an intersection and land on state highway 37.

"Truly, God's watching over us," Chanter said.

No one was injured during the emergency landing.

The plane has been removed from the highway.
