A small plane made an emergency landing on Highway 18, east of Lake Cowichan, Tuesday afternoon.
The plane was returning to the Duncan Air Park when it had engine trouble.
The pilot, who was alone in the home built plane, was able to glide it down and land safely on the highway.
There was no traffic on the road.
RCMP say the plane has been moved off to the shoulder of the highway.
Mechanics are coming from Victoria to remove the wings so the plane can be towed away.
