New York emergency landing plane had 'no landing gear visible' - eyewitness

A small plane which made an emergency landing on an interstate highway in a New York borough appeared to be "belly-down" with no landing gear visible, an eyewitness says.

The single-engine Piper PA-28 touched down on the Major Deegan Expressway in The Bronx on Saturday afternoon. Local media is reporting that none of the three people on board suffered serious injury.

Paul Collado, who was driving on the opposite side of the highway, told BBC News that the passengers made no attempt to leave the plane but appeared "shell-shocked".
