None too often does a propeller just up and leave the plane it’s attached to while in the air, but the one on this Cessna 172 decided it had had enough of the spinning business somewhere over Mexico and flew off on its own. Luckily the backseat passenger kept filming and the cool-headed captain brings it in for a safe landing on a road, all the while thinking through every possible contingency, including moving the GPS display to prevent it from hitting anyone.
