A Sikh doctor from Long Island landed his aircraft at the Long Island Sound of the Atlantic Ocean. The dramatic landing occurred as a “controlled landing” according to Dr. Inderpal Chhabra. The doctor has been flying planes for ten years and said he realized engine problems after hearing the engine “shutter.”
The co-pilot and the doctor immediately exited the plane after landing on the water and began to large rock nearby for safety. Help arrived shortly from the local fire department which took the two towards safety.
The incredible landing and story went widely unnoticed in the American news media until a local station picked it up.
