Man Who Landed Small Plane on Major Deegan Expressway Might Have Some Explaining to Do

By

After losing power en route to LaGuardia on Saturday afternoon, Michael Schwartz managed to land his Piper PA28-180 single-engine prop plane on the Bronx's crowded Major Deegan Expressway without running into any cars or seriously hurting himself or the two female passengers flying with him. (One was treated for a minor head injury.) That sounds pretty impressive, but his wife, Giovanna, didn't sound too proud when LoHud asked her for a comment. "Why don’t you ask him?" she said. "I’m sure he would be happy to tell you." Read into that what you will.
