He was trying to get to Ocean City Municipal Airport when he saw a gap in the westbound traffic heading towards Somers Point and decided to make the emergency landing.

Lucas released the banner into the ocean before landing the plane.

Witnesses told NJ.com they the plane was flying low to the ground for over an hour before Lucas landed it.

‘We were sitting at a window seat at Oves on the Boardwalk about 11.11am when my husband looked up and said that plane is in trouble,’ Sharon Lyons Wardlow told the news outlet. ‘It was low to the beach, traveling slow, with the banner hanging down.’ 

As of 2pm, crews were working to remove the wings and tow the plane away. 

Police say this incident remains under investigation.
