Frightening moments as a small plane crash-lands on a Long Island runway.

The ultralight plane had just taken off from Spadaro Airport Saturday afternoon.

The pilot, George McKee, says he soon realized the plane was having engine trouble.

"I knew I wasn't going to get much further so I turned right and landed on the parallel runway," McKee said.

The plane was damaged, but fortunately the pilot and his 7-year-old nephew were not hurt.
