This is going back a decade or more ago I believe, but....

...there was once an emergency landing made on the offramp of the Union Turnpike Exit on the Clearview Expressway in Queens, New York.

This took place in either the late 80's or the early 90's.

It was a small tiny aircraft that just needed to land. No one was hurt, and I believe there were only one or two passengers onboard.

Can anyone link me to an article, refresh my memory of exactly what happened, or better yet (oh boy!) show me a picture of it?

This would be me a very happy boy.

Thank you in advance.

Something very similar happened near where i lived in Montreal in the mid-to-late 70's, i think. the plane landed on the SErvice Road of the Main Highway, very near the airpor (less than 2 miles from a runway). I believe someone on the ground was killed, though.  Sad


Next flight.... who knows.

Here's one you may want to try to find. Back in the 60's or early 70's, a small Cessna landed on the George Washington Bridge in NYC. He lost power while cruising down over the Hudson River, made an approach THROUGH THE ARCH of the east tower, and landed westbound in the center lanes (thats RWY 27 on the George Washington Bridge). This was before there were concrete barriers dividing the east and west bound lanes. He ran into an oil truck that hit the brakes when the driver saw the plane in the mirror. (this was before "405 The Movie", where people were taught to speed up when you see an airplane in the mirror). I don't recall if anyone was hurt, but I don't think there were injuries. I'm sure there is an NTSB report somewhere on it.
