Plane Skids Off Montauk Runway

Three people escaped injury when a small plane they were in crashed as it landed at the Montauk Airport Monday afternoon.

The Piper Saratoga, a fixed-wing, single-engine, skidded off the runway and careened into the brush on the side of the runway at the East Lake Drive airport.

According to FlightAware.com, the plane took off from Westchester County Airport at 11:35 a.m. and touched down in Montauk at 12:15 p.m. The pilot told police he was landing when the plane hit a wind-sheer, hit a wing, and went off the runway.
