"NEW YORK (AP) A small plane made an emergency landing Saturday on an interstate highway in New York City, startling drivers but touching down safely with no serious injuries to anyone aboard, officials said.

The aircraft, a Piper PA-28, set down at around 3:20 p.m. on the northbound side of the Major Deegan Expressway in the Bronx, in an area where the highway passes through Van Cortlandt Park.

The Federal Aviation Administration said three people were on board. All were taken to a hospital, but police and fire officials said neither the male pilot nor two female passengers appeared to have been badly hurt."

Didn't that happen in Chicago once? I think it was like a few years ago.

Heard of a few small plane incidents over the past years like this.

How do they get the plane off the road?

Do they fix it and fly it off?

Load it on a flatbed tractor truck?

I would think they load it on a flatbed and bring it to the nearest airport...
