Watch This Amazing Emergency Landing After Airplane Propeller Falls Off

"I've never felt death so near."

Hey pilots, mind keeping your eyes on the open air in front of you? Oh wait. What? You just saw your propeller fall off? And now you're looking for a safe place to land in the middle of no where?

Gizmodo reports this is just what pilots of a Cessna 172B in Mexico had to do when the propeller of the plane dropped off (see video below):

Watch the cockpit view of the landing with audio of passengers' reaction and footage of the plane safely on the ground at the end (Note: the pilots start looking for a place to land around 1:10):

According to Gizmodo, one woman says "I've never felt death so near."
