Crashed plane remains in Susquehanna River


MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (WHTM) — The plane that crash-landed in the Susquehanna River on Friday evening is still in the water.

The Federal Aviation Administration said it is up to the owner of the plane to come up with a plan to get it removed.

The single-engine Piper PA-46 crashed landed into the Susquehanna River around 5:30 p.m on Friday. The pilot reported to emergency dispatchers that he was having engine problems.

The plane was headed for Harrisburg International Airport from New York when it missed the runway and had to land in the river, airport officials said.
