Parachutes are normally attached to individuals so it came as a surprise when a plane was seen drifting down to earth with one connected.
The strange sighting was captured on video in Sydney, Australia, by baffled members of the public.
‘It was very surreal watching this plane drifting down very slowly towards us,’ said a passer-by.
The pilot of the light aircraft had deployed the parachute when his Cirrus plane began experiencing engine problems.
Normally the plane would be forced to make a crash landing but the unique feature meant it could drift down safely.
All three people on board were able to walk away after the aircraft landed.
‘They were very lucky young fellas,’ added another witness.
