MAUI -- A pilot experienced some scary moments over the Pacific Ocean when his plane ran out of fuel, and the entire ordeal was caught on video.

The single-engine Cessna went down 250-miles off Maui after running out of fuel. The pilot was in contact with rescue crews the whole way. A Coast Guard aircraft scrambled to the site and captured this amazing video.

The small plane had its own parachute and landed safely. The pilot climbed out of the plane into a life raft and was picked up by a nearby cruise ship

He is reported to be in good condition.
