A single-engine plane flown by a 25-year-old pilot made an emergency landing on Highway 101 in Gaviota on Friday afternoon.
At about 4:30 p.m., the pilot noticed he was out of fuel and landed the plane on the southbound lane. He then taxied to the side of the highway.
Officials blocked one lane on the highway while the plane was refueled. The pilot then took off and later landed at the Santa Barbara Airport.
