What do you mean? $15,000 for the toll?

This is Arnie Pie! Looks like we got a little accident that's backing traffic up as far as this reporter can see.

Umm....it wasn't a crash landing. It was just a regular landing. On the turnpike.

/the Eisenhower Interstate system would be proud.

Is that a weird angle on that photo or are my eyes playing games or what? It looks like the port wing is longer than the starboard wing.

It's just the parallax from that angle.

Chopper 4: We opened fire on Channel 7's pussy News Van and Chopper 4 was first on the scene with photos of the bloody aftermath

Chopper 4: Mysteriously went down in the Hudson river...and Chopper 4 was first on the scene. Coincidence or CHOPPER 4?

The way we see it, we're twice as good as Chopper 2

Chopper 4!

Channel 7 may have a van but can that biatch fly?

It is. The plane is specially built for making left circles over the highways.

Wasn't one reason so it would be like the autobahn and able to move military convoys in time of emergency?

This was all over the news radio this morning. Oddly enough, no one ever made the claim that it was a traffic reporter plane.

I musta been listening to 2 of the stations that did NOT own said plane...

It was about two miles below 4, but I guess that's below 5 too.

Seriously. The dude landed, then pulled over to the right shoulder. If only every asshole who had an incident on the Turnpike had as much consideration.

/exit 4
//still Jersey.

Really could go for a Junior Turkey sub right now. Maybe a stuffed pretzel too. Fark they need one in Wisconsin.

Dr_Bojangles: heater

Since TFA didn't have any info as to why, this is a reasonable guess. But from other sources of info the reason they landed was low oil pressure, or at least that's what the gauge said.

/Talking gauges????

Don't they have airplane transport trucks to use instead of that standard flatbed tow truck? It looks like those rear airplane wheels are a little too far apart to even fit it on there.

Neat article though, thanks subby.

You know, I'm kinda curious there.
Parallax shouldn't make one wing longer than the other.
And the starboard tip isn't over white snow. It's over very dirty gray snow and well-delineated.
It does kinda look like he lost a wingtip here somehow.
