Davie, Fla. (WZZM) - Twelve-year-old twins Carly and Ashley Richmond say they know their father is a good pilot.
"Yea, he's good," confirms Carly.
So the girls say they aren't surprised 58-year-old Scott Richmond of Comstock Park made a successful emergency landing Thursday morning on a busy Florida freeway.
"He's been flying for a while, and that is probably why he did so well," suggests Ashley.
While flying from Michigan to south Florida on a business trip, Richmond says his single engine prop plane ran out of gas.
"She sputtered and quit," he explains. "She ran out of fuel."
While looking for a place to land on the freeway jammed with rush hour traffic, Richmond says he thought about his twins back home.
"I got two beautiful, twin 12-year-old daughters," he told reporters. "They are not ready. They aren't ready to be alone."
