(Gothamist)   It seems the wife of pilot who landed a single-engine Piper plane on the Bronx Expressway is soooo not happy about the husband's trip. Looks like there could be a crash-and-burn landing to their marriage   (gothamist.com) divider line 69

There were two other female passengers with Schwartz, but neither was his wife, who was less than forthright (or happy) when asked about the flight: "Why don't you ask him?"


Oh my.

I knew a guy that landed his plane on a highway once after running out of gas.  Not surprisingly, he flipped his plane on landing one day and killed himself.  Fortunately he was the only one on board.

I predict a follow-up.

Lawrence Sperry's autopilot ultimately made flying much safer. But it had another, less obvious benefit. It freed up pilots to do other things with their hands-and bodies. The brilliant young Sperry himself soon grasped the possibilities. Legend has it that in late November 1916, while piloting a Curtiss Flying Boat C‑2 some 500 feet above the coast of Long Island, he used his instrument to administer a novel kind of flying lesson to one Cynthia Polk (whose husband was driving an ambulance in war-torn France). During their airborne antics, however, the two unwittingly managed to bump and disengage the autopilot, sending their plane into Great South Bay, where they were rescued, both stark naked, by duck hunters. A gallant Sperry explained that the force of the crash had stripped both fliers of all their clothing, but that didn't stop a skeptical New York tabloid from running the famous headline "Aerial Petting Ends in Wetting." For his caper, Sperry is generally considered the founder of the Mile High Club, a cohort that loosely includes all those who have ever "done it" in flight.

When you do something as interesting as land a small plane on the Deegan with two (possibly loose) women who are not your wife on board, maybe we'll talk about you. Until then, quiet down.

Non-primary-source is non-primary source.  Note that the last update on this registration was in 2005 to an owner in Minnesota.  Whether or not this guy owns the plane my suspicion is that their database is out of date on this one.  But hey, I could be wrong.

This is yet another example of truly pathetic journalism.  We need pics of the pilot, his two female passengers and the wife he left behind.  We need complete backgrounds, complete with work history, on the two women involved.  Also included should be a psychoanalysis of both the wife and the husband to see if there is some sinister motive lurking behind his actions of if the wife is just a garden-variety biatch that anyone would prefer to leave behind.

How the hell are we supposed to gossip about this kind of thing when we have no pertinent information?

Er, is the Deegan also known as "the Bronx Expressway?"

Because this article just says "Landed on Bronx Expressway," as in "landed on an expressway in the Bronx."

It looks like a bunch of other news articles saw a headline like this and ran with it.  I don't think "the Bronx Expressway" is a thing.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

The Deegan is just the Deegan. I suspect the headline was just trying to state as briefly as possible where the expressway was. Read it as, "Landed on [a] Bronx Expressway."

Why has this not been made into an episode of Law & Order: Airport Police yet?

I mean it's obvious what's going on here, it's straight out of one of the episodes. The wife is insane with jealousy and tries to get revenge because her husband is cheating on her with two bi-sexual lesbians who were in the plane with him at the time of the attempted murder. A murder plot which was setup by the wife who hired her secret lover who also happens to be a mechanic at the airfield where the husband's plane is kept, to tamper with the aircraft so it would crash, leaving her with a big insurance settlement that she and her mechanic lover would use to run off to the Bahamas with.

Not expecting the husband to actually be a good enough pilot, plus the unforeseen actions of the D.O.T worker who stopped traffic to allow a safer landing, the wife and her lover will be trying to cover up evidence now that police are trying to crack the case after the forensic team found evidence of the tampering.

You can be flying with the 3rd notch of flaps pulled and the stall warning red as a tomato and you cannot open the door enough to slam it it and latch it.

At least in my experience. I was just doing touch and gos so when I was briefly on the ground reached over and slammed it.
